ESOMAR is a membership organization for market, social, and opinion researchers that was founded in 1947.[1][a] The name ESOMAR is an abbreviation of their original name, the European Society for Opinion and Marketing Research, which reflects the original catchment of the organisation.[2] ESOMAR has published an ethics and guidance code for its members since 1948, with a joint code being published with the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) since 1977.[3]

History[edit]

ESOMAR was founded in 1947.[1][a] In 1948 the first version of code of practice for members was published.[4] In 1976 ESOMAR and the ICC determined a single code of practice would be preferable and the first joint code of practice was published in 1977, with revisions in 1986, 1994 and 2007.[3] From the revision in 2016 the title and content was changed to include data analytics.[5]

Activities[edit]

ESOMAR produces information about market research.[6] ESOMAR produces the Research World magazine bi-monthly, with publisher Wiley Online Library claiming a worldwide circulation of close to 20,000 with the majority of the readers in Europe.[7]
