Abstract

What difference does it make when we conduct qualitative research interviews by telephone rather than face-to-face? This important question has received relatively little attention in the methodological literature to date. A study conducted at the Social Policy Research Unit (SPRU) has sought to contribute to filling this gap in knowledge. The study has taken an innovative cross-disciplinary approach, bringing together methodological expertise from the fields of conversation analysis and applied social policy research.
