Musch, J; Reips, U D (2000). A brief history of Web experimenting. In: Birnbaum, M H. Psychological experiments on the Internet. San Diego, CA: Academic Press, 61-88.

Abstract

In recent years, a small, but growing number of researchers has begun to use the world wide web as a medium for experimental research. To learn more about the circumstances and results of the first web experiments, we conducted a WWW-based online survey directed to researchers
currently engaged in web experimenting. We hoped to get an impression of the experiences of the pioneering generation of web researchers. We summarize the results of this survey which showed that an increasing number of web experiments with promising results is now being conducted, and give a brief overview on the short history of web experiments.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
