Please note: Measurement Instruments for the Social Sciences operates double-blind peer review. If sections of your manuscript such as ‘Authors’ contributions’ or ‘Competing interests’ contain identifying information please include these in your Title Page, along with the author names, contact information, as well as any other communication (like a cover letter) and upload this at the Attach Files step. The following information should not be included in the main manuscript file, but should instead be uploaded as part of the Title Page:

Peer reviewers

You may suggest potential peer reviewers for your manuscript. If you wish to do so, please provide institutional email addresses where possible, or information which will help the Editor to verify the identity of the reviewer (for example an ORCID or Scopus ID). Intentionally falsifying information, for example, suggesting reviewers with a false name or email address, will result in rejection of your manuscript and may lead to further investigation in line with our misconduct policy.

Excluding peer reviewers

During submission you may enter details of anyone who you would prefer not to review your manuscript.
