We emailed 5386 researchers who had recently published in one of 20 leading ecological or evolutionary biology journals with a link to our survey about 10 QRPs. Our response rate was ~15% with each QRP receiving 579-652 responses. For each QRP, we asked: how frequently (if ever) respondents used it, how frequently they believe other researchers use it, and how acceptable they find it. Survey que...
