The indispensable tool for scholars, students and professionals who do fieldwork, Field Methods offers:

  • Important refereed articles
  • Descriptions of methodological advances
  • Advice on the use of specific field techniques
  • Help with both qualitative and quantitative methods... all the tools necessary for those who conduct fieldwork.

Field Methods focuses on empirical tests of new methods for collecting, analyzing, and presenting data on human thought and human behavior and on new uses for existing methods. The data can be qualitative or quantitative as can the methods for analysis and presentation. Articles for FM should advance a method rather than simply report on the application of a method. Embracing both qualitative and quantitative methods in scientific and interpretive paradigms, the journal operates under the motto "methods belong to all of us." Field Methods is not only for researchers in the social sciences, but is also for professionals in the delivery of social services, in government, and in the private sector who use field research to acquire knowledge.
