Internet research methods in nursing science are less developed than in other sciences. We choose to present an approach to conducting nursing research on an internet-based forum. This paper presents LiLEDDA, a sixstep forum-based netnographic research method for nursing science. The steps consist of:
1. Literature review and identification of the research question(s)
2. Locating the field(s) online
3. Ethical considerations
4. Data gathering
5. Data analysis and interpretation and
6. Abstractions and trustworthiness.
Traditional research approaches are limiting when studying non-normative and non-mainstream life-worlds and their cultures. We argue that it is timely to develop more up-to-date research methods and study designs applicable to nursing science that reflect social developments and human living conditions that tend to be increasingly online based.
