About the Journal

The International Journal of Public Opinion Research is a source of informed analysis and comment for both professionals and academics. Edited by a board drawn from over a dozen countries and several disciplines, and operated on a professional referee system, the journal is the first truly comparative, multidisciplinary forum serving the international community. In addition to original articles, the journal includes review articles, surveys of recent developments in the field, a major book reviews and notes section, journal abstracts, information about forthcoming conferences, and news about its sponsoring body, the World Association for Public Opinion Research (WAPOR).


The International Journal of Public Opinion Research welcomes manuscripts that describe: - studies of public opinion that contribute to theory development and testing about political, social and current issues, particularly those that involve comparative analysis; - the role of public opinion polls in political decision making, the development of public policies, electoral behavior, and mass communications; - evaluations of and improvements in the methodology of public opinion surveys.
