While the editors saw the same summaries, the study varied if they could see the author's name and affiliation. Despite the fact that 79 percent of the 165 respondents are men, the analysis found that there was no gender bias open in the evaluations, with women who faced not biases when the author's name was visible to the editor compared to when It was not.
