CSI activities refer to the area of social informatics, a discipline dealing with the role of information and communication technology (ICT) in contemporary society. The research projects at CSI are related to web survey methodology and the use of digital technology in social science data collection in general, safe use of the Internet, social media, digital inequality, web and mobile usability etc. Researchers at CSI are one of the world’s leading groups in the area of the web survey methodology. They have published numerous scientific articles, created the related global website WebSM (http://www.websm.org), and developed a tool for creating and managing web surveys EnKlikAnketa (OneClickSurvey: http://english.1ka.si/). In 2015, they gathered their scientific findings in the book Callegaro, Lozar Manfreda, Vehovar: Web survey methodology published by Sage. Since January 2015, the CSI has been granted with the research programme “Internet Research”, directed by Prof. Vasja Vehovar, PhD, which aims to investigate the Internet as an object and as a tool for social science research.
