A System That Prioritises Publications Means Early Career Researchers’ Scholarly Attitudes and Behaviours Remain Conservative

Dave Nicholas has published "A System That Prioritises Publications Means Early Career Researchers' Scholarly Attitudes and Behaviours Remain Conservative" in the LSE Impact Blog.

Here's an excerpt:

ECRs are concerned by "risky" open peer review, regard archiving their work in repositories as a non-priority, and display little interest in open science or altmetrics. Many ECRs see opportunities for change, but do not feel able to grasp them as they are shackled to a reputational system that promotes publication record and citation scores above all else.
