We are proud to present the fourth issue of the Journal of Unsolved Questions. The title of this issue is “Science under Pressure”, in our preface we discuss how evaluation and competition affect science and scientists. Furthermore, we are very honored to have Prof. Konradin Metze as a guest writer with his essay “Impact of Science – critical reflections on its evaluation”. Highlights among the articles are a contribution from Munich in the field of linguistics about the Whorf hypothesis, and a contribution from Oxford in immunology about lung surfactant proteins.
Have an enjoyable read! We are looking forward to your comments!
