Session description: The permanent flow of technological advancements
presents an important driving force for methodological development in social
sciences. This session is seeking papers that will contribute to our
understanding of how new technologies (especially Internet services and
mobile technologies) are influencing the way we do quantitative and
qualitative research in social sciences. We are especially interested in
papers that would show how new technologies are used for collecting data. In
particular, the following areas are of special interest:
    a.. experimental comparisons of alternative design approaches
(contrasting and/or mixing modes of data collection, including new ICT
modes; contrasting and/or mixing qualitative and quantitative approaches
using new ICT);
    b.. exploration of methods for measuring and increasing data quality
when new ICT are used for data collection,
    c.. demonstration of the use of new and innovative research designs as
frontiers of technology.
