This article presents design principles and practical steps for web-based Q methodology surveys. Drawing on the experience of two online Q studies, we discuss theoretical concerns, sort and survey design, software programs, and issues in researcher–participant engagement. We argue that opening Q methodology to online modes of data collection is important to capture greater diversity in social perspectives and geographies.
