The Researcher’s Toolbox

A recent CFP from Journal of Virtual Worlds Research aligns nicely with our upcoming PhD seminar on Virtual Worlds and Methodology. We hope some of the participating students and staff will submit an abstract (due september 15th 2009). We will to devote time at the seminar to discuss paper proposals that might contribute to this methodological toolbox for researchers of virtual worlds.

CFP: The Journal of Virtual Worlds Research announces a special issue devoted entirely to research methods and virtual worlds with the objective of creating a methodological toolbox for researchers. The editors for this special issue invite submissions from a broad array of disciplinary approaches. Methods can include (but are not limited to): Physical-world and in-world ethnography, Surveys, Focus Groups, Interviews (both physical-world and in-world), Design Research/Playtesting, Experimental Methods, Back-End Data-Collection-Based Research.
