Die Online-Forschung ist eine besondere Disziplin: Das Internet ist sowohl Gegenstand als auch hauptsächliches Medium der Forschungen. Durch technische Entwicklungen befindet sich die Online-Forschung zudem im dynamischen Wandel: Die Weiterentwicklung der Analysemethoden, neue Auswertungsinstrumente und die wissenschaftliche Untersuchung des Social Web haben das Forschungsfeld verändert. Das Handbuch Online-Forschung bietet einen gut verständlichen Überblick über die sozialwissenschaftlich motivierte, internetgestützte Datengewinnung und deren Auswertung. In einer kompakten Darstellungsweise wird die gesamte Breite des Feldes sowohl theorie- als auch praxisbezogen bearbeitet und erlaubt einen akademischen und praktischen Überblick. Die Bandbreite der Themen reicht von den Grundlagen der Online-Forschung über Forschung im Social Web - auch im Zusammenhang mit dem Thema Forschungsethik - bis zu Praxisthemen wie Online-Mitarbeiterbefragungen oder die Umsetzung von Befragungen von Kindern. Wesentlich sind die Online-Inhaltsanalyse sowie mobile, standardisierte und repräsentative Online-Befragungen. Der Band beinhaltet aktuelle Themen und Entwicklungen, so z.B. Aspekte des Datenschutzes und Potenziale durch das Social Web, andererseits resümiert das Handbuch die Erträge, die über die Jahre erarbeitet wurden - wie Fragen der Repräsentativität, Panel-Forschung oder den Umgang mit schwierigen Befragtengruppen. Zur Zielgruppe gehören Sozialwissenschaftler, Ökonomen, Psychologen an Fachhochschulen und Universitäten, welche Methoden und Instrumente des Feldes reflektieren und anwenden, genauso wie Mitarbeiter und Projektverantwortliche von Unternehmen und Institutionen, die an der Entwicklung oder Anwendung von Online-Forschung beteiligt sind. Genau diese Interdisziplinarität und Relevanz in akademischer Forschung und Praxis waren auch bei der Zusammensetzung der Autoren ein wichtiges Kriterium.

The politics of the internet has entered the social science mainstream. From debates about its impact on parties and election campaigns following momentous presidential contests in the United States, to concerns over international security, privacy and surveillance in the post-9/11, post-7/7 environment; from the rise of blogging as a threat to the traditional model of journalism, to controversies at the international level over how and if the internet should be governed by an entity such as the United Nations; from the new repertoires of collective action open to citizens, to the massive programs of public management reform taking place in the name of e-government, internet politics and policy are continually in the headlines. The Routledge Handbook of Internet Politics is a collection of over thirty chapters dealing with the most significant scholarly debates in this rapidly growing field of study.

The contributors form a strong international cast of established and junior scholars.
