COSMIC (Compendium of Scales and Measures in Communication) contains triply cataloged entries for all scales, measures, and observational systems ever published in the communication/journalism literatures in the last 100 years, plus scores of communication-relevant research tools curated from external literatures. More than 700 resources are now included with more added continuously as they are published. Find anything with free-text search, or search by instrument title, or by subject areas, or using cataloging terms from any of the three coding dictionaries applied to each record. COSMIC also catalogs information on research design and procedure, without regard for mode of measurement (qualitative/quantitative).
