Background: In the light of the recent discussions about the statistical rigour of empirical research, including the interpretation and use of p-values and the importance of the theoretical underpinnings of population studies, the editorial board of Demographic Research has adopted dedicated guidance for authors. Its aim is to clarify our expectations and highlight good practice in these areas. Starting from Volume 42 (2020), authors will be encouraged to follow these guidelines.
