This research method contributes to the literature by measuring commensurably the Timing of Website Reconstructions (TWR) for Web-based research studies. TWR deepens the understanding the functionality of online media by focusing on specific web metrics to make the usage of this type of media efficient for disclosure function. This method helps establishing a new methodological pathway by providing chronological map of website reconstructions. The inputs of new method are originally based on publicly available data and it can be applied through 3 consecutive steps. Accordingly, this method is applicable to assess disclosure function for any web-based research study. In sum, this method presents.•The inputs of TWR method are publicly available data.•This method is applicable for variety web-based research studied regardless of the applied methodological approach (e.g., qualitative, quantitative).
