Scope The BMS: the Bulletin of Sociological Methodology/Bulletin de Méthodologie Sociologique is a quarterly peer-reviewed journal publishing in both English and French. The journal specialises in social science research methods, for data production as well as analysis, which it addresses through constructive discussion and debate on the relationship between research questions, tools (be they proven or innovative), and the varied ways of implementing these tools. The BMS aims to demonstrate just how much methodological choices and modes of implementation matter in the understanding of social reality. Le Bulletin de méthodologie sociologique est une revue trimestrielle à comité de lecture, dans laquelle les articles paraissent indifféremment en français ou en anglais. La revue porte un projet scientifique dans lequel les méthodes d’enquête, de terrain mais aussi d’analyse, sont appréhendées à travers l’échange d’expériences et font l’objet d’un débat constructif portant sur l’adéquation entre des questions de recherche, des outils éprouvés ou innovants et des façons, variées, de les mettre en œuvre. Le BMS se donne pour objectif d’explorer comment (et combien) les choix méthodologiques et les modalités de leur mise en œuvre influencent notre compréhension de la réalité sociale.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
