2. The Policy

This is the website of Survey Research Methods ("SRM"), which is the official, peer-reviewed open access journal of the European Survey Reearch Association ("ESRA"). The website uses the application Open Journal Systems (OJS) which runs on a server of the Universtiy of Konstanz, Germany.

2.1 The information we collect and how we use it

Users of the website can registers themselves as reader, author or reviewer. It is thereby possible to register for just one of these roles, or to register any combination of them. The following describes how we use the stored information of the user for each of the roles separately.

2.1.1 Readers

When someone register as a reader of SRM, we ask them to provide a user-name, an email-address and a name. If a registration is successful, a user account is created, which stores the reader's email address and name. We will use that email address to inform the reader.

  • about the publication of a new issue of the journal, and
  • about a withdrawal of a paper published in SRM.

We like to stress that the contents of the journal are accessible without registration.

We will never give out your email addresses to any 3rd party (including ESRA) and we never discuss the details of the accounts with anyone apart from you.

2.1.2. Authors

When someone register as an author of SRM, we ask them to provide a user name, an email-address and a name. If a registration is successful, a user account is created, which stores the author's email address and name. We will use that email address to correspond with the author about the ongoing reviewing and publishing process. Particularly, we use the email address

  • to inform the author about the results of the reviewing process, and
  • to request additional files necessary for the reviewing process, or for the publication of an accepted paper, and
  • to publish the email of the corresponding author of an accepted paperin the published issue.

Moreover we publish the names of authors of accepted papers in the table of contents of published issues.

Authors will not be informed about the publication of new issues of the journal unless they also register as a reader.

We will never give out your email addresses to any 3rd party (including ESRA) and we never discuss the details of the accounts with anyone apart from you.

2.1.3 Reviewers

When someone register as a reviewer of SRM, we ask them to provide a user name, an email-address and a name. We also ask reviewers to provide a list of reviewing interests, but those are not mandatory. If a registration is successful, a user account is created, which stores the reviewer's email address and name along with the reviewing interests. We will use that email address to correspond with the reviewer about the ongoing reviewing process. Particularly, we may use the email address

  • to remind reviewers about the deadlines for the review,
  • request reviews of a revised version of a paper, and
  • to invite reviews of a newly submitted papers

Reviewers will not be informed about the publication of new issues of the journal unless they also register as a reader.

The reviewing interests may be used by SRM's Editor and the Associate Editors in order to identify reviewers for a specific submission. We like to stress that Associate Editors may also use their own scientific network to contact and correspond with reviewers. SRM does not take responsibility for any direct correspondance between the Associate Editors and reviewers.

We will never give out your email addresses to any 3rd party (including ESRA) and we never discuss the details of the accounts with anyone apart from you.
