Longo (2010) discusses that nurses have been conducting research studies using the internet for at least the last ten years. In a study by Im and Chee (2002), they identify the dramatic increase in using the internet to conduct research. These two nurse researchers conducted studies exploring cancer pain experiences in different genders and ethnic groups. Social workers, Alessi and Martin (2010) discuss that software designed for data collection is easy for even a novice researcher. Examples of software include Survey Monkey ( ), Zoomerang ( ), and Zarca ( ). Using these methods, the researcher can download data onto a spreadsheet format and easily convert it into a statistical program for analysis. However, it is important that when designing surveys for internet research, that the surveys are “participant friendly” and that there is a smooth functional process when completing the survey (Crawford, McCabe & Pope, 2010). As easy as it might be to use software products to collect data, this process does not come without ethical problems.
