Welcome to the survey!

Question Title

Although the peer-review process plays a key role in research dissemination, only limited research has been conducted so far in this field.

The objective of this survey is to investigate the perspectives of biomedical editors and authors towards the quality of peer-review reports. We hope this work will help us to develop a new tool to assess the quality of a peer review report in biomedical research.

Knowing your expertise, we would be very grateful if you could answer a few questions and share your opinion. The survey will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. Your participation in this study is completely voluntary. If you decide to participate, all your answers will be de-identified and stored in a secured repository at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona-Tech (Spain).

This study is part of the Methods in Research on Research (MiRoR) project, a joint doctoral training programme in the field of clinical research funded by Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action http://miror-ejd.eu/. The objective of MiRoR project is to train future generations of scientists in Research on Research, a new discipline aiming to promote research integrity increasing research value and reducing waste in health research.

This study is conducted by Cecilia Superchi, a PhD student at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, Barcelona-Tech and Université Paris Descartes, Sorbonne Paris Cité in collaboration with Prof. Darko Hren (University of Split), Prof. José Antonio Gonzalez (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya) and Prof. Isabelle Boutron (Université Paris Descartes).
