    Qualitative research has long been concerned with sensitive research areas. Sensitive research online in particular and qualitative online research in general have many unknown challenges. Not least, protecting researcher vulnerabilities warrants careful thought and guidance. This chapter offers researchers areas to watch out for and become cognizant of, when studying uniquely important and often changing sensitive online data sets. We invite you to consider this chapter as a framework to protect against potential vulnerabilities researchers may experience in unknown online areas, especially where evolving qualitative methods are essential to new forms of digital data collection and analysis.
