Public Opinion Quarterly Special Issue

Public Opinion Quarterly seeks submissions for a special issue of the journal devoted to an examination of the 2012 election. The issue is scheduled to be published in January, 2014.
We invite contributions on all topics related to the 2012 election, and we especially welcome submissions that are both substantive and methodological in nature. Potential topics might include (but are not limited to): the performance of pre-election and exit polls; the impact of new technologies on election polling; measurement issues in evaluating policy attitudes; the estimation of campaign effects, including the impact of new and old media; and the implications of early voting and voter identification laws for election polling.

The deadline for manuscript submissions is extended to April 1, 2013. To submit a manuscript, please follow the manuscript preparation instructions provided at the journal’s website.  Blinded and unblinded electronic copies of the paper should be submitted online at, and it should be clearly stated in a cover letter that the manuscript is for consideration in the 2012 election special issue. Submissions will be peer-reviewed in accord with normal journal practice. For queries about this special issue, please feel free to contact the special issue guest editor, Michael Traugott at
