Update: The survey is now closed! Thanks to everyone who participated—I’ll post the results soon.
Yesterday John Stanton-Geddes e-mailed me and Tim Vines to ask about writing a post, or a series of posts, on the question of whether or not scientists should sign the reviews they write for papers submitted to scientific journals. I got the e-mail within, I think, about 30 minutes of seeing that Terry McGlynn had tackled just that topic in a new post over at Small Pond Science. So this seems to be a topic worth discussing!
But it occurred to me that it’d be nice to have a sense of the consensus (or lack thereof) within our general field of evolutionary ecology, as background for that discussion. So I’ve set up a Google Docs poll to ask our readers: do you sign your peer reviews? It’s seven quick questions, and the last one is a chance to volunteer your contribution to an upcoming discussion of anonymity and peer review. Go here to tell us what you think. Thanks in advance!
