Content and Aim: At the first glance, most of us would assume that this lecture is only for those who are involved in research. But this is certainly not true! For those who are involved in conduction of research, it is mandatory that they perform the research well to curtail wastage of time and money. They are also expected to publish it later in a peer-reviewed journal so that the research can be presented to the world without any ambiguity. On the other hand, those who are not involved in conducting research themselves, are the end users of the fruit of such tedious efforts and should at least be able to differentiate between good and bad science. Only good science needs to be adopted and followed. There are many examples of biased researches in literature. It is not possible to differentiate between biased research outcomes from unbiased ones without a proper understanding of each aspect of research. This lecture aims to present the advantages and also the disadvantages of using the internet for sexology research, with an emphasis on web surveys and web based qualitative studies. Threats to the reliability and validity of web based studies will be discussed. Learning Objectives:
    1. Understand the key methodological advantages
    2. Understand the key threats to the reliability and validity of web surveys
    3. Be aware of methodological tips to maximise results of web surveys
    4. Learn the opportunities of web based qualitative studies and be mindful of some ethical considerations
    5. Get introduced to on big data
Produced in 2020
