TagPad: Supporting Field Interviews and Analysis
2013 (English)In: iConference 2013 Proceedings / [ed] Linda Schamber, iShools , 2013, 316-325 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
The area of cyberinfrastructures has looked extensively at research within the natural sciences, however, the social sciences have been largely overlooked in terms of novel data collection and analysis systems. We developed a probe tool, TagPad, to look at the process for social science data collection through interviews and surveys. Our research participants found that TagPad facilitated structuring of interviews but we also found that the setting in which the interview takes place is essential to the success of using this particular tool. We conclude suggesting future designs of social science research tools.
