Sociological Methodology, an American Sociological Association journal under the editorship of Tim F. Liao, seeks contributions to all areas of cutting-edge methodology in sociology and the broader social sciences.

Sociological Methodology is published as an annual volume, containing papers in chapter form. Normally, the content of Sociological Methodology is driven by author-initiated submission without pre-specified themes. Editorial decisions over manuscripts are based on the advice of peer referees. Criteria for assessment include originality, breadth of interest and applicability, and expository clarity. Discussions of implications for research application are vital, and authors are urged to use empirical examples of the methods they discuss.

See How to Submit page for further details.


Inquiries concerning the appropriateness of material and other aspects of editorial policies and procedures are welcome. Prospective authors should contact the editor by email:
