AbstractIn order to determine author perception of peer review and association between quality of review and author satisfaction, this study surveyed over 500 authors whose manuscripts were under consideration by the Annals of Emergency Medicine. The authors found that contributor satisfaction with peer review was modest. Authors of rejected manuscripts were dissatisfied with the time to decision and communication from the editor. Author satisfaction is associated with acceptance but not with review quality.
