About the Blog + Policy

Sociological Methods & Research is a quarterly, peer-reviewed, quantitative sociological methods journal which was founded in 1972, and has been edited by Christopher Winship since 1995.

The online home for comment papers, research notes and replications

The SMR blog provides a forum for peer-reviewed comment papers and replications which cannot be included in the print edition of the journal. Submit comment papers to be peer-reviewed and posted to the blog by emailing the managing editor, smr@wjh.harvard.edu with the file attached. Once reviewed and accepted by the editor, authors of comment papers will be notified. After the final version of the comment paper is returned it will be posted to the blog.

A forum for increased intellectual exchange

The SMR blog also welcomes all kinds of commenting, sharing and posting. Please feel free to comment on SMR content, post links and announcements of interest. We also encourage people to register as an author and participate.

Comment Policy (please read)

A key purpose of the SMR blog is to expand the opportunity for academic discourse and the exchange of ideas. The SMR blog welcomes constructive, diplomatic, on-point comments from anyone. Users may prefer to use a pseudonym — we only require a valid email address. This address will not be used to identify a user’s real identity (even for our own information), or shared. We reserve the right to remove posts which we do not think constructively contribute to the discussion.  As with any traditional academic journal, contributors do not have any “right to publication.”
