Surveys of the opinions of the scientific community on types of peer-review system, especially the use of double anonymity, remain sparse. This work has canvassed the opinion of 1,439 editors-in-chief, editors and editorial board members of journals by all major publishers in chemistry, on the use of double anonymity in the peer-review process. This is the first time such a survey has been conducted within the chemistry periodicals community. Data were gathered by means of an e-mail questionnaire, the response rate to which was 25.7%. The results of the study are presented. Analysis of the data, with some supporting discussion, is provided.
