A Excelência analisada no "The Guardian"

O que significa excelência científica? Um professor de política científica no University College fop London ensaia uma explicação. Ler aqui.

Um extracto:

"Prioritizing ‘excellent’ research perpetuates the reproduction of scientific elites and the concentration of scientific research in particular disciplines and places. Sociologist Robert Merton called it the Matthew Effect after the Gospel relating Jesus’s parable of the talents: ‘unto every one that hath shall be given… but from him that hath not shall be taken away’."
