The experience sampling method (ESM) refers to a set of research procedures that involve repeated data collection of people’s behaviors, thoughts, and emotions as they occur in their natural environment. These procedures are also referred to as diary method, ecological momentary assessment (EMA), ambulatory assessment, intensive longitudinal method, etc.

ESM enables researchers to have access to high-resolution time series data on psychological, behavioral, and interpersonal processes as they occur in people’s everyday lives, outside of the laboratory. With these unique features, ESM has attracted attention in a wide range of fields in psychology, since it was first developed in the 1970’s. With the recent technological advancements, the effectivity of ESM has been dramatically improved. Widespread use of smartphones and wearable devices has made it possible to efficiently collect data from people in real time in their natural environment, and user-friendly software applications to support the procedure are now available. There is growing interest more than ever before in applying ESM in psychology and its related fields.

This special issue invites papers involving ESM applications in psychological studies. In terms of data collection, we are open to a variety of measurement frequencies (e.g., random/fixed times within a day, or once daily/weekly), under the condition that they provide high-resolution time series data. Procedures may include not only subjective measurements (e.g., self-report), but also objective ones (e.g., physiological index). A wide variety of research designs are welcome, such as intervention studies, or a combination of ESM and laboratory experiments. We invite not only empirical research articles, but also review papers with theoretical implications, as well as reports on innovative technological/methodological developments. The aim of this special issue is to provide an integrative understanding of the advantages of ESM as a research tool, and how this method can contribute to the progress of psychology and its related fields.
