This paper presents four D&V stages: literature review or interviews with experts; theoretical or face validation; semantic validation or validation with possible respondents; and statistical validation. Findings: This is a methodological paper, and its main finding is the usefulness for researchers. Research limitations/implications: The main implication of this paper is to support researchers on the process of D&V of measurement scales. Practical implications: Became a step-by-step guide to researchers on the D&V of measurement scales. Social implications: Support researchers on their data collection and analysis. Originality/value: This is a practical guide, with tips from seasoned scholars to help researchers on the D&V of measurement scales
