Research output: Contribution to journalArticleScientificpeer-review

Abstract

There is widespread agreement that skills are a major determinant of Internet use in developing countries. There is much less discussion however of what such skills actually comprise and how they are best measured. This paper addresses these and other issues in an attempt to say what is known about Internet skills in developing countries and what still needs to be understood.
