ASAPbio ran two surveys in advance of the Peer Review meeting: one more general survey for all stakeholders (closed 2018-02-06 with 295 responses) and one on Peer Feedback for authors and reviewers (closed 2018-01-31 with 370 responses).
The aim of this combined ALPSP/EASE survey was to achieve a greater understanding of the peer review process in a variety of disciplines and to provide a set of agreed guidelines. The survey was exclusively online and was made available on the ALPSP website in October 2000. The questionnaire was highlighted in the news section of the home page and remained there for just over one month, during which 200 responses were collected and considerable interest was generated. The following report shows the results of the survey and also includes comments received by email during the time that the questionnaire was displayed

The survey was conducted in September 2017.
