Extract from Introduction (p. 5): “This Best Practice Guide has been compiled by drawing on the multi-disciplinary and multi-method expertise of the sixty plus researchers who comprise the EU Kids Online network (see Annex B). Its purpose is to distil the knowledge, experience and insights of those actively researching children’s use of online technologies for the benefit of those entering this domain. It is intended to be useful to new researchers, to experienced researchers new to this domain, to those commissioning or evaluating research on children and online technologies, and to students and interested others. The Best Practice Guide is presented in the format of Frequently Asked Questions, since this how new researchers most commonly express their need for knowledge and guidance.”
