Episode 2. Part 4/4.
During the last fourth part of our interview with Björn Brembs we talked about high impact scientific journals and their prestige. Our guest explained that numerous studies showed that research in these journals is often irrelevant, irreproducible and sometimes even flawed. But scientists still find to be published in this journals very prestigious and essential for their careers, and moreover, they teach new young scientists to do the same. From Björn's perspective we need to get rid of journals and let universities set up the infrastructure for scientific research, text, data and code which will be affordable, sustainable, reliable and open.
