Study description

Thank you for participating in this survey to gather insight into the performance and reporting of animal research. There are two parts to this survey, the first focused on the writing of animal research, and the second on the review of studies containing animal research. The first section will take 15-20 minutes to complete and the second 5-10 minutes, and you may complete just one or both sections (as applicable).

We ask that you provide honest accounts of your experimental and reporting practices as your answers will be used to help to improve the ARRIVE (Animal Research: Reporting of In Vivo Experiments) reporting guidelines to best meet the needs of researchers.
This research is conducted by the NC3Rs in collaboration with the University of Bristol.
All data collected in this survey will be treated in strict confidence, made anonymous, and held securely by the NC3Rs. No information will be collected during this survey that can be used to identify any individual respondent.
