Peer Review Survey 2019

    Press/Media

    Description

    Over the past 10 years, much has changed. Technological advances are transforming not only how research – and peer review – is conducted, but the article formats and channels used to communicate those findings.

    10 years on from the influential 2009 Peer Review Survey we have partnered with Elsevier to find out how far we have come. 3000 researchers were surveyed to understand how researcher attitudes have changed. Read the full report,  Quality, trust & peer review: researchers’ perspectives 10 years on.

    Researchers responded from a wide array of disciplines, career stages and locations. We repeated some of the questions asked in 2009, but importantly expanded our scope to capture feedback on trustworthiness, what constitutes peer review, and which metrics best signal quality and aid evaluation. We also wanted to understand how researchers view public confidence in research. In addition to the survey, we interviewed a number of researchers to explore the issues raised.
