Thank you for taking part in this survey from BMC Medicine.

This survey is targeted at ‘Early Career Researchers’, who we are defining as people with five years or fewer of research experience post-PhD or MD (FTE, although we will consider longer if people have had career breaks) and/or someone who does not yet have their first tenured position or independent grant.

The purpose of this survey is to understand what support you require from BMC Medicine and if/how you would like to be more involved with the journal.

The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to complete.
