Call for Participation: Survey on a software tool for reading and reviewing digital scientific literature

We are looking for your support to improve peer reviewing! In the CAIS fellowship project of Prof. Iryna Gurevych, we are working on a software tool for reading and reviewing digital scientific literature. As the CAIS brings together a diverse set of experts on digitalization research, one part of the project is a survey among the CAIS community, concerning the practices of reading and reviewing. We would greatly appreciate it if you could help us to improve the tool by filling out the survey. It should take between 10 and 20 minutes.
Please fill out the survey by the 23rd of May (latest).Some results of the survey will be presented in the CAIS colloquium talk of Prof. Gurevych on the 1st of June.
As a little teaser: In a few months, you will also get the chance to try out the tool first-hand!
In the survey, we kindly ask you to provide your e-mail address. We might use the e-mail address to contact you in case of additional questions or clarifications. Providing the e-mail address is of course absolutely voluntary, it will not be used in any other way and it will not be shared with anyone.

In case the hyperlink to the survey does not work, here is the link to the survey for copy-and pasting:

The UKP lab is investigating methods to support reading digital scientific literature and peer review. In cooperation with the biology department at TU Darmstadt, we have developed a software tool that can guide young researchers in assessing biomedical publications. It can also assist researchers in transforming their in-line comments into a proper review report. The tool employs techniques from artificial intelligence and natural language processing to provide its functions.
We are planning to extend the tool to cater to the needs of researchers from the humanities and social sciences. For this, we need to know more about the common practices in these fields concerning the consumption of digital literature and peer reviewing. The survey will help us gather this knowledge.
The tool is developed as part of the ATHENE and PEER projects.
We hope to have caught your interest with this survey.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact the study coordinators
