Neat report: clear, concise and helpful.

I just have minor comment, but I acknowledge that it's a bit sneaky (sorry for that!). You're advocating for research transparency in this report, but you're not very transparent about how this report was constructed. You say that you're building on the "rich and constructive discussion on transparency in QCA that took place in, especially, Stage 2 of the Qualitative Transparency Deliberations (QTD)" (p.2), but you don't really explain how you did it. For the sake of consistency , It might be worth giving a bit details on the nature of the discussion (how many users, how many comments...), and how you used the content of this discussion to construct your report (which comments did you keep, which one did you drop...).

But again, very helpful report. Thanks.

Damien Bol.
