Welcome to the Experience Sampling Methodology (ESM) Item Repository!
We are an open science initiative, which aims to support the further development of Experience Sampling Methodology (ESM) research by creating an open repository of existing ESM items. To achieve this, we established the ESM Item Repository in 2018 as part of a three-phase project. The repository portal launched in October 2019 and to date the repository contains 756 items, contributed by five different research groups, across four different countries, and we have more on the way!
The primary aims of the ESM item repository are to:
- Provide a source to help researchers find items, learn about their use, and detect relevant items for constructs of interest
- Support the integration of knowledge about existing items
- Help researchers identify overlapping items
- Support the conceptual development and psychometric evaluation of current and new items
