The authors believe this state can be remedied by a more conscious combination of theoretical concepts of human behavior and empirical work. To this end this paper identifies four key challenges in sound Web Science: A - Providing theoretical context for studies, B - addressing the role of technological design and communication culture, C - dealing with large data sets and D - charting the web so research can be placed within. We then propose a blueprint for research practices which is based on the school of critical rationalism and serves to increase a study’s contribution to the field of web science.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Jürgens, Pascal</dc:creator> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-02-13T14:04:55Z</dc:date> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/42"/> <dc:contributor>Jungherr, Andreas</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:title>The interplay of theory and observation : a proposition for structured research on human behavior on the web</dcterms:title> <dcterms:issued>2009</dcterms:issued> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/37362"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2017-02-13T14:04:55Z</dcterms:available> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
