Publish or Perish…?

Frequent publications draw attention to scholars, help to ensure continued funding, and are crucial to further a career in academie. In consequence, scientists suffer constant pressure to publish new work frequently and spend considerable time writing papers. Is this compatible with the principles of science? And what are the principles on which modern natural science is based?

In loose succession, we will explore and scrutinize publication practices currently common in natural sciences and investigate how they affect scientific research.
