Editorial Scope: This new journal is devoted to the interdisciplinary study of measurement in the human sciences. It will feature focus articles that make an important conceptual contribution to the field, along with commentaries that embody dialogue and debate across multiple perspectives. The journal's overarching theme is to promote the development, critique, and enrichment of the concepts and practices of measurement. Contributors will share a common link, the serious study of measurement from a broad range of disciplines and perspectives including psychometrics, ethnography, social theory, psychology, education, linguistics, sociology, and policy studies.
A distinctive feature of Measurement is open peer commentary on focus articles. Commentary authors will write "open reviews" of the focus article from a broad perspective to add richness and insight to debate. Through peer commentary and authors' responses, Measurement will provide an opportunity for discussion that is currently unavailable to the general readership.
Focus articles will include seminal papers on important issues in the field in the form of single papers, sets of linked papers, or summaries of recently published books on one of the following genres: A report and/or discussion of empirical research with a broader scope and/or implication than found in other measurement-associated journals; An unusually significant theoretical article that systematizes or gives new perspectives on a body of theory, research, and/or practice in measurement; A novel interpretation, synthesis, or critique of existing measurement work; A summary and commentary on a field of application of measurement that either is a significant contribution to measurement in that field, or which contains an important message for measurement work in general; A rigorous, evidence-based critique of measurement theory and practices from outside the discipline; or A rigorous, evidence-based critique from within measurement on theory and practices outside the discipline.
Audience: All those who have a serious interest in the study of measurement theory, application and criticism including psychometricians, sociometricians, mathematical psychologists, clinical psychologists, educational curriculum developers, policy researchers, educational and psychological test developers and assessment designers, professionals in medical and public health fields, and social scientists who study the history and effects of measurement practices.
