Research Methods Knowledge Base HomeNext » What is the Research Methods Knowledge Base? The Research Methods Knowledge Base is a comprehensive web-based textbook that addresses all of the topics in a typical introductory undergraduate or graduate course in social research methods. It covers the entire research process including: formulating research questions; sampling (probability and nonprobability); measurement (surveys, scaling, qualitative, unobtrusive); research design (experimental and quasi-experimental); data analysis; and, writing the research paper. It also addresses the major theoretical and philosophical underpinnings of research including: the idea of validity in research; reliability of measures; and ethics. The Knowledge Base was designed to be different from the many typical commercially-available research methods texts.
Over a number of years, my interests have centred on information seeking behaviour, and information needs but I have also carried out work in the areas of office automation, information systems strategies, information service evaluation, and other aspects of the impact of information technology on organizations. I am also interested in, and have written on, electronic scholarly publishing and digital libraries and their impact on the traditional academic library, business and the World Wide Web. Since retirement my research has been concerned with: Mobile computing in a Police Force - a publication is in progress. Information overload - a PowerPoint presentation is available; and Phenomenology and information research - an ISIC conference paper, and a Keynote address to CoLIS 4, address this issue.
