Feasibility of methods to reduce publication bias_academics/researchers

  • Harriet Carroll (Creator)



Responses from academics/researchers in the project "The perceived feasibility of methods to reduce publication bias". Data were collected via Bristol Online Surveys. Using convenience snowball method, we collected opinions from academics and researchers regarding 9 different methods of peer-review/publication that have been proposed to reduce publication bias. Respondents were asked questions regarding their views on the efficacy of the publication process, and then asked to choose the method they felt to be most effective at reducing publication bias, and to rate all the methods from 1 (not at all effective) to 5 (very effective) . Throughout the survey, non-compulsory open ended questions were provided in order for respondents to provide their opinions on the pros and cons of the methods.
