Interest in emotions within the information use context is on the rise. Yet, the reports of the emotion studies rarely mention some of the methodological challenges involved in research. New researchers who are entering the field are often unaware of the challenges and potential solutions related to emotions' examinations. This paper attempts to educate researchers about some of the methodological options that are available at various stages of emotion study, including selection of theory and methods, data collection and analysis, extraction of meaning from data, and application of the findings to the real life problems. The paper offers recommendations for handling some of the challenges that might arise during a project.
