Aims and scope

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. 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.
