Friday, 9 November 2018, 14:00Add to calendarHow should we value "novelty" in science?Barak Cohen, Washington University School of Medicine, USAHost: Halldór StefánssonLarge Operon, EMBL Heidelberg
Abstract: Scientist are under increasing pressure to do "novel" research. Journals and funding agencies often specifically list novelty as a key criterion for judging the impact of research. In this lecture, Barak Cohen will examine whether novelty is an important component of good science and will introduce concepts from philosophy and sociology to argue that we currently over emphasise novelty in science. Furthermore, Cohen will discuss the negative effects of this emphasis and will suggest alternatives measures of good science.
