Measurement Instruments for the Social Sciences (MISS) is an interdisciplinary scholarly journal for the social sciences. The journal publishes high-quality, open access measurement instruments intended for scientific use across various disciplines (e.g., sociology, psychology, education, political science, economics etc.) or as adaptations in local cultural contexts. Though focusing mainly on social surveys for the general population, instruments may also be relevant for the study of individual differences and useful in specific diagnostic contexts of relevance to the general population. MISS advances social science measurement and methodology also through systematic reviews, test reviews, meeting reports, and best practice approaches related to specific tools and measurement in general. MISS expects empirical backing up of scientific claims, predominantly by a quantitative approach.
