    Web surveying academics in six European countries.Rob Eisinga, Martine van Selm & Sanne G. A. Smeenk - 2008 - Communications 33 (2):191-210.
    The WWW is increasingly used as a tool and platform for survey research. Several principles have been developed to deal with the new challenges posed to researchers conducting online surveys. In this paper, we discuss some of the challenges we encountered in all phases of our Web based survey conducted in 2004/2005 among nearly 10,000 respondents in six European countries. We argue how and to what extent we applied the principles and methodologies of online surveys to meet the challenges, ranging (...)

    Political Parties Online: Digital Democracy as Reflected in Three Dutch Political Party Web Sites.Liza Tsaliki, Nicholas W. Jankowski & Martine Van Selm - 2002 - Communications 27 (2):189-209.
    This paper examines how three Dutch political parties employ the Internet as a tool to enhance ‘digital democracy’. The potential of digital democracy is considered to be strongest in the sphere of collective action outside the domain of political institutions. In this article, however, attention is given to how institutionalized channels might be supportive of digital democracy. Three components of the democratic process – information provision, deliberation, and political decision-making – are examined in the content and user assessments of the (...)

    Between Altruism and Narcissism: An Action Theoretical Approach of Personal Homepages Devoted to Existential Meaning.Martine Van Selm & Ellen Hijmans - 2002 - Communications 27 (1):103-125.
    This article aims to examine existential meaning constructions from an action theoretical perspective in a specific Internet environment: the personal homepage. Personal homepages are on-line multi-media documents addressing the question ‘Who am I?’ Authors of personal homepages provide information on both their personal and public identity. These identity constructions sometimes include reflections on the meaning of life. Answers to questions on the meaning of life reflect the way in which individuals assign ultimate meanings to human life, and consist of three (...)

    Framing pension reform in the news: Traditional versus social media.Linda van den Heijkant, Martine van Selm, Iina Hellsten & Rens Vliegenthart - 2023 - Communications 48 (2):249-272.
    Social media are increasingly important in the news menu of media users. Differences in news production processes between traditional and social media may lead to differences in how political and social issues are depicted, and this may, eventually, have consequences for the information that reaches citizens about an issue. Against this background, this study compares content across the two media types to examine whether and how the framing of a sociopolitical issue differs between newspaper articles and posts on social media. (...)

    Older adults’ television viewing as part of selection and compensation strategies.Martine van Selm, Johannes W. J. Beentjes & Margot J. van der Goot - 2015 - Communications 40 (1):93-111.
    A large share of the available literature on television and ageing depicts old age as a life stage characterized by losses in which people use television as a substitute for decreased activities. The aim of the present study is to investigate how television viewing is part of both selection and compensation strategies. Based on a qualitative interview study among a diverse sample of older adults, we found three ways in which television viewing is part of selection strategies and three ways (...)

    ICT performance in processes of knowledge sharing in organizations: A review of literature. [REVIEW]Martine van Selm, Marieke Wenneker & Paul Nelissen - 2008 - Communications 33 (1):91-107.
    The purpose of this paper is to theoretically explore in what ways Information and Communication Technology corresponds with knowledge sharing in organizations. We will address the research question: “What notions and relationships have been proposed in the literature regarding ICT use and knowledge sharing?” In order to draw connecting lines between different bodies of literature, we developed two notions of ICT performance as a guiding principle in reviewing the literature. On the one hand, ICT is portrayed as a guide that (...)

    Transmural palliative care by means of teleconsultation: a window of opportunities and new restrictions. [REVIEW]Jelle van Gurp, Martine van Selm, Evert van Leeuwen & Jeroen Hasselaar - 2013 - BMC Medical Ethics 14 (1):12-.
    Background: Audio-visual teleconsultation is expected to help home-based palliative patients, hospital-based palliative care professionals, and family physicians to jointly design better, pro-active care. Consensual knowledge of the possibilities and limitations of teleconsultation in transmural palliative care is, however, largely lacking.This paper aims at describing elements of both the physical workplace and the cultural-social context of the palliative care practice, which are imperative for the use of teleconsultation technologies. Methods: A semi-structured expert meeting and qualitative, open interviews were deployed to explore (...)
