Access Microbiology open research platform community survey results published -

The Microbiology Society is converting its sound science journal, Access Microbiology, into an open research platform at the end of 2021. The platform will turn the peer review process of Access Microbiology inside out, so that all versions of the article, the peer reviews and the Editor’s decision is posted on the platform for all to see.

Following focus groups in February, a community survey was conducted to address some of the key open questions that arose from the focus groups. To be as transparent as possible with the community, a summary of these results and the underlying data in Access Microbiology have been published. The Society has also outlined its recommendations for the platform.

Survey results indicate that 94% of respondents stated that the platform is somewhere they would consider publishing, and that most people are supportive of an open data policy.
