    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;We used criteria associated with the Transpose database to evaluate policies in 171 of the most highly-cited journals across disciplines. We found that nearly one third don&amp;rsquo;t clearly state even basic information about the editorial process, such as whether peer review is blinded.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;These findings represent preliminary results of the Transpose landscape study.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
