Psychometrika

Psychometrika
http://www.psychometrika.org/journal/Psychometrika.html

Psychometrika, the official journal of the Psychometric Society, is devoted to the development of psychology as a quantitative rational science, including the advancement of theory and methodology for behavioral data analysis in psychology, education, and the social and behavioral sciences generally. There are three main sections in Psychometrika: Theory & Methods, Application Reviews & Case Studies(ARCS), and Book Reviews. Theory and Methods is the primary section, and it contains articles on the development of quantitative models for psychological phenomena, and on quantitative methodology in the social and behavioral sciences, including new mathematical and statistical techniques for the evaluation of psychological data, and the application of such techniques. Empirical studies will be considered only if they involve new or particularly interesting uses of quantitative techniques. Articles about the development and/or results of specific tests will generally not be considered. Application Reviews & Case Studies (ARCS) is the newest section of Psychometrika, and it is designed to highlight the essential connection between data analysis and modelling methodology and its application to data in psychology, education sciences, and related areas in the social sciences and marketing, in a way that deepens the substantive understanding of phenomena in one of these disciplines.
