Bloggers cited in my dissertation

by Lilia Efimova on 16 March 2009

I made a page to include references to the people weblogs of whom I cite or discuss in some way in my dissertation, this post is a shortened version of it. It is here to notify bloggers that quotes from their blogs (or links to them) appear in the dissertation text.

If you are the blogger listed here you might want to know that:

  • I treat weblogs as a publicly available texts and do not ask permissions for citing them. The reasons for this and other choices in respect to referring to bloggers in my dissertation are discussed in the research ethics section of it.
  • If you have a concern about your weblog being cited, I’m happy to share the text where it appears and remove the citation if you have a reason for doing so. This could only be done until the dissertation text is finalised (somewhere end of April-mid May 2009), so if you have a concern it’s the time to act.

Bloggers are listed in the alphabetical order according to their surnames (blog titles if I couldn’t figure out the name); next to the names I include blogs that (I think) identifies the blogger best at the moment of making this list (March 2009). Titles of the specific posts cited are linked to the pages where I originally found them or, if those were moved, where they could be accessed in March 2009. The list excludes bloggers cited anonymously and those, who’s academic work is cited without discussing their weblogs.

Lilia, I’m glad that you were able to use the blog post when creating your dissertation. And shocked, I must admit.

Best of luck!

Wow it’s a small (virtual) world – I am not in KM but I am in some way directly connected with five of the bloggers mentioned (and now through you I am indirectly linked to them all)…

Mark, I found your post since you used my visualisation of blog linking and then was struck by realising that many other people view self-linking very differently from how I do it. Should blog it, really…

David, funny, isn’t it? Especially knowing how less a randomly selected weblog is connected to others :)
