Dear scientists, dear colleagues,

Thank you for participating in our survey on the quality assurance process in scholarly publishing.

The scholarly publication process has seen numerous changes in recent years, presenting research institutions and libraries with new challenges with regards to funding and purchasing decisions. A stable quality assurance process remains a decisive criterion for the evaluation of publishers and journals and represents a crucial factor for financial decisions.

Therefore, we would like to know more about your experience with publishers as an author, reviewer and/or editor. Answering the questions will only take about 15 minutes.

All information you provide in the questionnaire is voluntary and will be treated in strict compliance with data protection regulations. The anonymity of your data is guaranteed.
