The Digital storytelling in research is a qualitative report published in February 2017. The paper starts by presenting the history and value of digital story telling as an arts based research method for generating data about important issues.

The purpose of the report is to demonstrate the different methodologies and the range of benefits as well as pitfalls of digital storytelling. The different methodologies described in this report include, participatory research as an approach to self-representation, allowing people to be the narrators of their own stories and as a tool to capture rich information. Other methods include digital story as a way of offering a counter narrative to challenge prevailing narratives on themes such as HIV/AIDs, health inequality and sexual orientation.

This review is suitable for readers who have an interest in qualitative data as well as readers who would like to get a broader understanding of the multiple ways to capture information through digital storytelling.
