An event was held in Oxford UK on 12 October 2015 to discuss the practical implications of the revised Good Publication Practice document (GPP3).
In the lead up to the event the organisers ran a simple, anonymous, online survey regarding GPP3 and collected responses from 197 specialists, which provided some interesting insights into the views of the community. The top-line data was included in the presentation given by Liz Wager, but the full data set is freely accessible as indicated below. It is worth taking time to browse the many free text comments.
