How to Cite Interviews

"Interviews are a useful means of obtaining information from individuals who have been directly involved with the topic or period one is researching. Such individuals are 'primary sources' who can provide data or perspectives which may not be available from other sources. Individual interviews are normally used to establish or support particular points in a paper; a series of structured interviews may also comprise an entire 'original research component' of a paper if they form a coherent body of new information on the research topic."

(University of Tampere, 22 January 2012)

A methodological discussion of email interviewing

"This article summarizes findings from studies that employed electronic mail (e–mail) for conducting indepth interviewing. It discusses the benefits of, and the challenges associated with, using e–mail interviewing in qualitative research. The article concludes that while a mixed mode interviewing strategy should be considered when possible, e–mail interviewing can be in many cases a viable alternative to face–to–face and telephone interviewing. A list of recommendations for carrying out effective e–mail interviews is presented."
