We associate the pursuit of science with long hours spent in the library and tedious analysis of data. Meanwhile, one of the more effective measures of our scientific activity and the level of science being done is the network of air connections and the number of flights that scientists take. What do these issues have in common with the level of science? This is discussed in the next episode of the podcast.
Dr. Adam Płoszaj (EUROREG UW) talks about the results of research on the mobility of scientists and methods for estimating good science, answering Dr. Justyna Pokojska’s questions about
- purpose and ability to measure science,
- the possibility of quantifying the level of a particular discipline,
- the way we can tell that there is good science above a certain level and less valuable research below it,
- measures that best reflect the effectiveness of our research,
- the need to «be» in order to be considered a good scientist,
- research by Dr. Adam Płoszaj and conclusions in the context of the UW researchers,
- the impact of the pandemic on global science.
