Carl Zimmer weighs in on the need to reform science
In his New York Times article he takes as an entry point the increased number of retractions. (I link in retraction watch again). He also discusses the dysfunction of science in his blog. There is a bit of a discussion going on there.
Note that the people he are speaking with are biologists. The issues with science is not just about the “softer” sides where I reside (Psychology), but seem to be a general issue with skewed incentives.
Funding/incentives may be somewhat different in Sweden, where I reside, but science is international, and the problem with torrents of sloppy papers affect all of us.
