The article discusses the problem of accuracy of social studies аз a general methodological category, i.e. a category being significant, in the authors opinion, for each methodology and also at all stages of a research process starting from conceptualization to formulation of final conclusions, both in empirical studies and those based on literature of the subject. It is not a description of some theory of accuracy but rather an attempt at compilation of knowledge about social sciences. Against the background of sources of this methodological category - empiricist trends, the author points out constraints to accuracy and puts forward proposals how to eliminate them. They concern conduct within the framework of the methodology of empiricism, as well as a broader and more reliable utilization of achievements of the humanistic trend.
