– Call for contributions, Research in Social Stratification and Mobility: Special Issue on experimental methods in social stratification research

Field experiments, vignette studies, curriculum studies using the correspondence test method and laboratory experiments are increasingly used by sociologists and economists to understand the mechanisms driving inequalities in education and labor market participation, family dynamics, migration, and housing. The Journal invites both empirical contributions and methodological reflections. Empirical contributions should also address and explicitly discuss study-specific issues of internal and external validity and ethical concerns. Methodological reflections may discuss, in more general terms, these issues or other issues that are relevant to the practice of these methods in empirical research. Systematic reviews and meta-analyses based on applications of these methods to social inequality domains are particularly welcome. Policy evaluation analyses are welcome to the extent that they inform also theoretical debates in social stratification research.

For more information, contact Carlo Barone (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) or Heike Solga (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.).

To submit a paper, refer to the website of the journal and indicate the contribution targets the special issue. The deadline to submit a paper is 28 February 2019.
