Methodologies for Internet Crime Research

ABSTRACT
In addition to the novel enforcement and prosecution challenges posed by internet crime, researchers are confronted with an equally daunting set of new research questions. Some traditional approaches to data collection and measurement can be applied to studying this new media, but others are inappropriate, unreliable or simply ineffective. This presentation considers many of the operational parameters within which such research must be conducted and contrasts different methodological strategies for examining internet crime and deviance.
