Survey Research Methods

Survey Research Methods is the official peer reviewed journal of the European Survey Research Association. The journal publishes articles in English which discuss methodological issues related to survey research. Two types of papers are in-scope:
  1. Papers discussing methodological issues in substantive research using survey data;
  2. Papers that discuss methodological issues that are more or less independent of the specific field of substantive research.
Topics of particular interest include survey design, sample design, question and questionnaire design, data collection, nonresponse, data capture, data processing, coding and editing, measurement errors, imputation, weighting and survey data analysis methods.

In general, papers based on students or on small sized experiments will not be published. We also don't publish mathematical papers or simulations. Survey Research Methods focus on data collection methods for large scale surveys.

Survey Research Methods is indexed by the Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI). Impact Factor 2013: 0.778

Vol 8, No 3 (2014)
