Authoritarian control of research bibliometry in the EU

  • As of 2019, scientists in much of the EU, and in particular Poland, are forced to use bibliometry databases run by private subcontractors owned by private corporations that respond to the market, not to academic/intellectual standards:
  • How seriously can we trust the academic standards of corporations of which one seems to be secret (Baring Private Equity Asia) and one has a bad academic reputation? Bibliometry decisions lie at the core of our system of organising knowledge in the sense of scientific/academic research.
