Abstract

Isolation measures to contain the spread of COVID-19 means that social researchers who are used to doing fieldwork have had to consider ways for avoiding in-person interactions by using mediated forms (digital or non-digital) that will achieve similar ends. This crowdsourced document, initiated and edited by Deborah Lupton (who contributed the first tranche of content), has been put together by researchers who have added a range of diverse ideas for doing fieldwork in a pandemic.

Keywords: social research,COVID-19,research methods, fieldwork, online methods,ethnographic methods
