Methodology is the official organ of the European Association of Methodology (EAM), a union of methodologists working in different areas of the social and behavioral sciences (e.g., psychology, sociology, economics, educational and political sciences). The journal provides a platform for interdisciplinary exchange of methodological research and applications in the different fields, including new methodological approaches, review articles, software information, and instructional papers that can be used in teaching. Three main disciplines are covered: data analysis, research methodology, and psychometrics. The articles published in the journal are not only accessible to methodologists but also to more applied researchers in the various disciplines.
Since 2020, Methodology is published as an open-access journal in cooperation with the PsychOpen GOLD portal of the Leibniz Institute for Psychology Information (ZPID). Both, access to published articles by readers as well as the submission, review, and publication of contributions for authors are free of charge!
Articles published before 2020 (Vol. 1-15) are accessible via the journal archive of Methodology's former publisher (Hogrefe).
Methodology is the successor of the two journals Metodologia de las Ciencias del Comportamiento and Methods of Psychological Research-Online (MPR-Online). All issues of these journals are still available at www.aemcco.org and www.dgps.de/fachgruppen/methoden/mpr-online.
Methodology is indexed in: Social Sciences Citation Index (SSCI) and Current Contents/Social & Behavioral Sciences (CC/S&BS) (since 2009), PsycINFO, PSYNDEX, ERIH, and Scopus.
