Over the past two decades, survey researchers and cognitive psychologists have joined forces to apply theories and methods from psychology to improve survey instruments. This collaboration has also allowed psychologists to explore the applicability of their theories using techniques usually not used in psychological experimentation. The field is often called "Cognitive Aspects of Survey Methodology", or CASM.

This volume examines in particular how this cross-fertilization has been beneficial for memory research. The authors come from a variety of backgrounds and this diversity is reflected in the collection of papers. Empirical data and models for understanding the survey response process illustrate the state of the art in this rapidly expanding area.
