Changing methods of data collecting, processing and presenting as practiced by Russian sociologists are followed-up analyzing all papers printed in ‘Sociological Studies’, Moscow in 1981, 1996, and 2011. Preferred methods of data collection did not practically change – with limited use of qualitative methods being the only exclusion, while use of statistical methods remained at a low level. Limited progress in data description and presentation is partly explainable by journal’s editorial staff efforts.
