Survey Research Methods (SRM)

Survey Research Methods is the official journal of The European Survey Research Association (ESRA) and is published electronically with free and open access via the internet. We aim for a fast review and publication process, so that papers can be published within three months of initial submission. The first issue was published in 2006.

ESRA’s peer-reviewed journal aims to be a high quality scientific publication that will be of interest to researchers in all disciplines involved in the design, implementation and analysis of surveys.

Topics of particular interest include survey design, sample design, question and questionnaire design, data collection, nonresponse, data capture, data processing, coding and editing, measurement errors, imputation, weighting and survey data analysis methods.

We encourage articles which take appropriate advantage of the opportunities provided by the web-based format of the journal, for example by including linked documents, video, images, etc. The journal aims to be a forum for the exchange of knowledge between those involved in designing, carrying out and using surveys in academic, government, private and other organisations.

The journal is edited by Ulrich Kohler of the University of Potsdam, Germany and Jaak Billiet of the Catholic University of Leuven. The editors are supported by a multi-national panel of Associate Editors.
