Feasibility of methods to reduce publication bias_editors


Carroll, H., 2017. Feasibility of methods to reduce publication bias_editors. University of Bath. https://doi.org/10.15125/BATH-00347.


We conducted a survey to help understand the views of journal Editors with regards to different methods of the publication and peer-review process to help reduce publication bias. Editors were asked questions about their views on publication bias and the publication process in general, followed by nine proposals which have been suggested to reduce publication bias. They were asked to choose the proposal they felt to be 'most effective' at reducing publication bias, and were asked to rate each proposal from 1 (not at all effective) to 5 (very effective). Throughout the survey, there was open ended questions (all optional to complete) so that respondents were able to discuss the pros and cons to any of the proposals.
