A scientist's perspective of research output and quality


Pat Taggart and Anne Harris, from NSW DPI,  are running a review on how scientists within the field of ecology/environment perceive different sectors of their research community (government, academic, industry, non-profit). There are often strong opinions expressed about the quality, relevance and bias of research from specific sectors. The aim is to provide an objective comparison using publication records from Web of Science and a survey of active scientists across the world.

The survey can now be accessed here:

This survey is totally anonymous and has been validated by the Orange Ethics Committee, New South Wales Department of Primary Industries (Ethics approval number: HRE-NLR-2022-1).
