 Mission Statement

Sociological Methodology is the only American Sociological Association periodical publication that is devoted entirely to research methods. It publishes important methodological papers of interest to the entire field of sociology. SM seeks contributions that address the full range of problems confronted by empirical research in the social sciences, including conceptualization and modeling, research design, data collection, measurement, qualitative analysis and quantitative data analysis. SM provides a natural forum for engaging the philosophical issues that underpin sociological research. Papers published in SM may be original methodological contributions, expositions and illustrations of recent developments, and critical discussions of research practice. SM is published annually as an edited, hardbound book.
