The purpose of the study is to understand what aspects of peer review are most valued by the scientific community at all career levels. Our goal is to compare the values of peer review across career stages and between authors, editors, and journals. Your responses will allow us to construct a tool to evaluate and improve the peer review process. We will publish the results in a way that is broadly visible to the scientific community.
