 + 
 +  * " Following the most popular models in philosophy of science, working hypothesis at the start of the investigation was that HE-physicists,​ especially theorists, would be divided in many larger or smaller communities supporting a specific BSM-model (or model class) and presenting arguments in its favour and against other models. However, the analysis of research preprints soon showed that almost no disputes of this kind took place and that the same arguments could be used in support of different models (naturalness,​ dark matter candidate, unification...). " 
 +  * "The two runs of the online-survey confirmed how little commitment HE-physicists have in the BSM-models at present on the marked."​ 
 +  * "​Moreover,​ most model-builders were seen to work on different kinds of models at the same time, without necessarily committing to one of them. " 
 +  * "The results of our investigation suggest that traditional philosophical models in which scientists choose among rival theories on the grounds of specific criteria do not fit the situation in HEP, where a large number of models remain on the market despite lack of empirical evidence in their favour, while only a minority of researchers appear to have a strong committment for or against one or the other of them.
