Aims and Scope

Measurement Instruments for the Social Sciences (MISS) is an interdisciplinary scholarly journal devoted to documenting high-quality measurement instruments for the social sciences (e.g. questionnaires). The journal publishes open access measurement instruments intended for scientific use across various disciplines (e.g., sociology, psychology, education, political science, economics etc.) or across multiple languages. Though focusing mainly on social surveys for the general population, the 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. MISS subscribes to high scientific, open-science and ethical standards, and employs a strict peer review procedure in line with COPE guidelines ensuring the integrity of the scholarly record.
