Stop Filling Gaps in Research, Start Innovating and Imagining

Despite, or probably due to, the increasing importance of (top-tier) publications — think of “publish or perish”, RAE/REF — published articles (including in top-tier journals) increasingly have an incremental contribution at the cost of more imaginative and innovative ideas.

What (social) Factors Make For an Innovative Researcher?

One might ask why researchers go to the effort of undertaking unconventional, path-breaking work? What makes some scientists more likely to engage in research that breaks from tradition, despite the risks? In our recent study, we considered two possible explanations. First, we thought that scholars affiliated with high-status demographic…

The Tedium of Transcription: Who’s Codifying the Process?

Furthermore, some conversational elements aren’t transcribed well by pattern recognition programs. What, or who, is really transforming the transcription process, then? What’s next for transcription?
