The third edition of Internet Research Skills will be published in the next couple of weeks. It includes a new chapter on how to use social media in the research process and new material on organising and managing your references and research data. Things have changed radically since the last edition of the book in 2007 and beyond all recognition since the first edition in 2002. Students and researchers are much more sophisticated in their internet use and the new technologies have become ubiquitous to an extent that I think few people foresaw even ten years ago. When I first started working with the Internet in 1994, writing web-pages from scratch, it was difficult to envisage these expensive and slightly complicated technologies becoming universal in a way that even the fixed-line telephone never did.
