The Methods and Measurement section is an inclusive platform for sharing the latest insights into the practice of political research.
Empirical political analysis has made tremendous advances and arguably, political scientists never had more methods, measures, and evidence at their disposal. However, progress has been uneven and tensions are increasingly visible.
Methods and Measurement welcomes submissions that address such debates and suggest a way forward. We publish articles that advance the empirical study of political phenomena in the broadest sense and welcome submissions from all epistemological backgrounds. This encompasses qualitative methods, case-based as well as interpretive; quantitative techniques, both deductive and exploratory; plus big data applications. We welcome broader epistemological dialogues and contributions that help to fulfill the promise of mixed and multi-method research designs. Finally, we are committed to publishing articles that connect methods scholars and applied practitioners, including features focused on the teaching of methods and techniques.

All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Methods and Measurement, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Methods and Measurement will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Political Science.
