I ran a poll to learn how much of our time is spent on service activities. I was surprised to learn that “more than 21%” is the answer that received most votes. In fact, for myself I thought it would be between 10 and 20%, but I calculated it based on my Toggle logs, and it’s 31%. Certainly, since becoming editor in chief of a journal, editing and reviewing is taking a fair amount of my time.
