Call for Papers : The 8th International Conference on Social Science


Venue: The University of Sydney, Sydney Australia Conference dates: Monday
July 9 - Friday July 13, 2012


RC33 (the International Sociological Association's Research Committee on
Logic and Methodology in Sociology) has organised the International
Conference on Social Science Methodology every four years, since 1984. It is
now the major international forum for current and fundamental issues in
social science methodology and since 1984 has attracted scholars from all
over the world and from a diverse range of academic fields and disciplines.


The focus of the conference is on innovations and current best practice in
all aspects of social science research methodology. It provides an
opportunity to reflect on contemporary methods, as applied in a range of
settings and disciplinary contexts, to hear about emerging methods, tools,
techniques and technologies, and to discover what resources are available to
social science researchers and users of research.


The aim of the conference is to disseminate knowledge and promote
methodological debate with the goal of contributing to the scientific
development of social science research, particularly by building the
evidence base to evaluate the efficacy, efficiency and rigour of the methods
and techniques of social science research.


Papers on all aspects of social science methodology are welcome, including
but not restricted to: critiques and analysis of the philosophical paradigms
that underpin the logic of social research; issues in the formulation of
research questions; the design of social research; methods of collecting
data, and analysing them; research technologies; and issues relating social
science methodology to research consumers.


The call for abstracts of papers opens September 2, 2011, and we are
accepting submissions until December 1, 2011. Session convenors or the
conference organisers will inform you of your abstract acceptance by
December 19, 2011 and registrations will open on that date.


Abstracts will only be accepted through the online submission form, and
submission in any other form will not be accepted (instructions will be on
the conference website).


The conference Web site provides information about the conference, including
key dates and deadlines, and submission guidelines. You can sign up for
regular updates and news about the conference on the website.
