SRM presents a special issue on survey research during the COViD-19. The issue collects four types of papers: (1) Commentaries about ongoing research using surveys, or related methods. (2) Proposals of designs to study Coronavirus-related questions using survey research, (3) New research initiatives related to the pandemic that already started. (4) Descriptions of the adaptation of ongoing surveys (PSID, Share, Understanding Society, etc.) to the lockdown policies. In order to allow a swift publication of the papers, SRM changed its standard reviewing process and suspended the possibility for a revise and resubmit for papers that could make it into the issue with more rounds ofrevisions. The papers are considered to be contributions to ongoing debates instead of decisive research papers. Therefore they are published together with commentaries by peers, and sometimes with responses by the authors of the main article.
