The Asian Journal for Public Opinion Research (AJPOR), the journal of the Asian Network for Public Opinion Research (ANPOR) will publish a special issue focused on methodological challenges, limits, and opportunities for improvements for future research on public opinion issues in Asia in August 2020.

We want to publish papers that study contemporary methodological questions when conducting public opinion in Asia. If the current methods are not appropriate, how can current methods be adapted, or should they be replaced by other methods? Under these circumstance what are the challenges when adapting these methods? Or, what can public opinion research learn from adapting methods currently in use in other scholarly fields?

We expect to publish imaginative and interesting papers that include both empirical applications and thought papers. We hope to contribute to the further development of public opinion research in Asia by showcasing methodological advancements that demonstrate their usefulness in public opinion theory, research, and practice.

Papers are welcome from researchers in any country but the papers must focus on public opinion research in Asia (broadly defined). A guide for authors along with other relevant information about the special issue can be found on the
