New topics for inclusion in the WVS-7 Survey Questionnaire



 
The World Values Survey Association has started  to plan  the 7th wave of the World Values Survey, to be conducted worldwide in 2016-2018.

The Executive Committee will update  the  survey questionnaire  for this wave. The aim is  to include  several new  issues  relating to significant  social, economic and political processes of value change.

We kindly invite you to submit your proposals regarding the topics and issues that should be included in WVS-7 questionnaire.

To submit a topic proposal, please, select one of the two alternative options below:

Option A. Proposal submitted as a text document

Proposals should be 5-10 single-spaced pages  in Word or PDF format and  structured to use the following sub-headings. To submit your proposal, please send the document by email by the deadline to the WVSA Secretary (kseniya.kizilova@abdn.ac.uk).

(3) Abstract: A brief opening paragraph summarizing the topic proposed for inclusion in the questionnaire; (200 words)
(4)  The  theory behind the proposed new  topic.  In particular,  how  is the topic theoretically interesting for social science and what literatures does it draw upon?  Is it policy-relevant  for the international community? And  is it methodologically  rigorous and suitable for cross-national research?  
(5) Key puzzles. What important and enduring puzzles  flowing  from the topic could be tested empirically by  cross-national  survey evidence?  What are the core
propositions and testable hypotheses?
