We take this opportunity to announce the second installment of our Research Risk Assessment initiative through this short but specific survey on peer review. You can check the results of our previous survey and download the detailed report by clicking the link here.

Thank you for agreeing to take part in this important survey on peer review and helping us understand the various nuances that the art and science of peer review present. Enago is the preferred partner for several publishers and journals, and it was also part of the Peer Review Week Committee this year (theme: Trust in Peer Review). Your thoughts and opinions will be shared with some of the topmost publishers and will also be instrumental in propelling the discussion around the possible innovations in the peer review process.

The survey should only take 3–5 minutes, and your responses are completely anonymous. You can take the survey only once, but you can edit your responses until the survey is closed on December 31, 2020. Questions marked with an asterisk (*) are required.

We really appreciate your inputs!
