ABSTRACT

The aim of this article is an exploration of the problem concerning gathering triangulation in internet research by using a computer. In this article the concept of triangulation implemented by Norman Denzin, defined as “searching for information on the same subject in different sources” (Hensel, Glinka, 2012, p. 94) was used. The attempt to obtain particular kinds of triangulations (examination techniques, data, researches, theories) concentrates on the subject connected with the relation between patients and their doctors. For researchers subjects based on possibilities and restrictions connected with gathering multiplicity of information inside different kinds of triangulation concerning one subject seems to be interesting.

 

Keywords: triangulation, internet researches, relation between a patient and his doctor.
