Abstract

This article sets out to review the main issues facing IMR today. As well as offering guidelines for good practice (based on my experiences and those of other researchers in conducting psychological studies via the internet), I hope to stimulate research that assesses the validity of IMR procedures. As most psychologists who are considering using the internet to support their research will not want to become expert programmers, I also provide a list of resources available to help implement an internet-mediated study with minimal technical expertise.
