Presentation of a new common methodology for surveys on reading habits in Europe (ERICS). The partners
of Aldus Up present the EuRopean Item Core Set for Reading Surveys (ERICS), which provides a basic

reading surveys in Spain and Norway will be presented as an example of the integration of this methodology, that can be supplemented by further individual variables depending on the focus of the survey in each country. The aim is to implement this common methodology in order to make the results of future surveys more comparable between European countries and thus to obtain a comprehensive overview of the development of reading in Europe. The main elements in ERICS were presented this year:
