From Text- to Hypertext-analysis: Consequences for Qualitative Research

Johannes Moes

Abstract


While gradually more texts are being distributed via the 'world wide web' and simultaneously becoming analyzed in the social sciences, there is a basic lack of reflection on the consequences of this change from text to hypertext. The article points out some of the differences relevant to qualitative research and structures them under the aspect of blurring boundaries.
