Requiring no prior knowledge of programming or web site design, this easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide helps professionals as well as students create interactive behavioral research instruments online. With this volume, anyone can learn to write programs in HTML and CGI/Perl that will enable them to take full advantage of all the benefits of Internet-based data collection: the ability to effortlessly manipulate visual and narrative content, randomize the presentation order of stimuli, and provide customized assessments and feedback for research participants. Including extensive examples throughout, the book explains everything from how to obtain access to a web server to mastering HTML coding, processing data with CGI/Perl, and importing data files into popular statistical packages. While the examples are from psychology, the technical skills the book provides can be adapted to other fields that make use of behavioral research.

Historically, social researchers have shown a willingness to exploit new technologies to enhance, facilitate and support their various activities. However, arguably no other technological development has influenced the landscape of social research as rapidly and fundamentally as the Internet. This collection avoids both uncritical embrace and wholesale dismissal by considering some of the key literature in the field of Internet research methods. Volume One: Core Issues, Debates and Controversies in Internet Research introduces themes and issues that run across all four volumes such as: epistemology, ontology and methodology in the online world; access, social divisions and the 'digital divide'; and the ethics of online research. Volume Two: Taking Research Online - Internet Survey and Sampling addresses the range of resources, digital archives and Internet-based data sources that exist online from relatively straightforward and practical guides to such material through to more polemical pieces which consider problems relating to the use, access and analysis of online data and resources. Volume Three: Taking Research Online - Qualitative Approaches considers the broad range of approaches to conducting researching via or 'in' the Internet. The focus is on conventional methods that have been 'taken online', and which in doing so, have become transformed in scope and character. Volume Four: Research 'On' and 'In' the Internet - Investigating the Online World follows logically from that which precedes it in exploring how social research has been 'taken online', not simply through the deployment of existing methods and techniques via the Internet, but in researchers' increasing recognition and investigation of the online world as a sphere of human interaction - a socio-cultural arena to be explored 'from the desktop' as it were.

The second edition of the Handbook of Feminist Research: Theory and Praxis, presents both a theoretical and practical approach to conducting social science research on, for, and about women. The Handbook enables readers to develop an understanding of feminist research by introducing a range of feminist epistemologies, methodologies, and methods that have had a significant impact on feminist research practice and women's studies scholarship. The Handbook continues to provide a set of clearly defined research concepts that are devoid of as much technical language as possible. It continues to engage readers with cutting edge debates in the field as well as the practical applications and issues for those whose research affects social policy and social change. It also expands on the wealth of interdisciplinary understanding of feminist research praxis that is grounded in a tight link between epistemology, methodology and method. The second edition of this Handbook will provide researchers with the tools for excavating subjugated knowledge on women's lives and the lives of other marginalized groups with the goals of empowerment and social change.

The Internet is revolutionizing the way psychologists conduct behavioral research. Studies conducted online are not only less error prone and labor intensive but also rapidly reach large numbers of diverse participants at a fraction of the cost of traditional methods. In addition to improving the efficiency and accuracy of data collection, online studies provide automatic data storage and deliver immediate personalized feedback to research participants-a major incentive that can exponentially expand participant pools. Furthermore, behavioral researchers can also track data on online behavioral phenomena, including Instant Messaging (IM), social networking, and other social media. This book goes beyond the basics to teach readers advanced methods for conducting behavioral research on the Internet. Short chapters offer practical advice by leading experts in key domains of Internet research. Readers are shown, step by step, how to conduct online experiments, surveys, and ability testing, use advanced graphic tools such as drag-and-drop objects, apply automatic text analysis tools, check the validity of protocols, automate the storage and analysis of data, record "field notes" on the behavior of online subjects and chatroom or blogging communities, and much more. Chapters also address critical issues such as data security, ethics, participant recruitment, and how to ensure the completion of tests or questionnaires. This volume also features a companion Web site with additional resources, links, scripts, and instructions to further assist readers with their online research. This book is designed for researchers and advanced graduate students in the behavioral sciences seeking greater technical detail about emerging research methods. Readers will be well equipped to implement and integrate these exciting new methods into their own Internet-based behavioral research effectively, securely, and responsibly.

Ganz klar: Das Schöne am Open Source-Code ist natürlich der freie Zugriff auf ihn, doch gerade deshalb will die Code-Entwicklung besonders gut organisiert sein. Versionskontrollsysteme ermöglichen es jedem Projektmitglied, zunächst unabhängig zu arbeiten und seine Änderungen am Quellcode dann in ein Repository einzufügen, mit dem die unterschiedlichen Versionen überwacht und verwaltet werden. Intelligente Verwaltung mit Subversion Wer bei Software-Projekten bisher das bewährte CVS benutzt hat, dem steht mit Subversion eine stabilere und flexiblere Alternative zur Verfügung. Versionskontrolle mit Subversion, geschrieben von Mitgliedern des Subversion-Entwicklerteams, stellt dieses mächtige Open Source-Tool vor und beschreibt, wie Sie es fachgerecht installieren und konfigurieren. Die Autoren zeigen Ihnen, wie Sie durch die intelligente Verwaltung und Dokumentation mit Subversion Konflikte und Datenverlust vermeiden können. Für Programmierer und für Systemadministratoren Das Buch eignet sich für Leser mit ganz unterschiedlichem Hintergrundwissen: Sowohl Programmierer ohne Kenntnisse der Versionskontrolle als auch erfahrene Systemadministratoren kommen hier auf ihre Kosten. Und CVS-Kennern wird mit diesem Buch ein problemloser Wechsel zu Subversion ermöglicht.

Die nahe Zukunft: Bücher, Zeitungen und Zeitschriften sind so gut wie ausgestorben – die Smartphones, genannt Mems, übernehmen für die Menschen jegliche Form der Kommunikation. Als Synchronic Inc., ein riesiger Computerkonzern, mittels einer Wörter- App die Sprache selbst monopolisieren will, kommt es zur globalen Katastrophe: Die App setzt einen Virus frei, der den Menschen das Sprachvermögen raubt – völliges Verstummen und im schlimmsten Fall der Tod sind die Folge. Einzig ein Geheimbund aus Linguisten und Lexikografen versucht, Synchronic Inc. aufzuhalten.
