Abstract [en]

In this article we want to discuss the advantages and disadvantages we have found when using online interviews with children and teenagers.



* What ethical and methodological issues are specific to online interviews?

* How can the method be developed further?



It is based on experiences from three different research projects in which children at different ages were interviewed online, and it discusses some ethical and meth-odological problems concerning this method. No web cameras were used, which had the effect that no eye-to-eye contact was possible between the interviewer and the interviewee.



Six critical themes have emerged in our discussions of online interviews; Bridging the Distance, Written Conversations, Interpretation Difficulties, Identity, the Ethics of Online Interviewing and Practical Issues.



We have found that online interviews can be very useful as they simplify the in-terview situation in many ways.
