Quotes

Scientists don’t get paid to rediscover yesterday’s discoveries. Nowadays most of them get paid for adding to the ever-growing pile of the world’s unread scientific literature. There is a growing disconnect between the emphasis placed on scientific publication, as the main way forward in a scientist’s career, and the delivery of the knowledge that they have generated to society. Indeed it sometimes seems to me that scientists are rewarded for publishing science and punished for publicising it.
– Julian Cribb, The case of open science
