Researchers are proud of what they do 👩‍🔬 👨‍🎓 👩‍💻 👩‍🚀 But today’s #ResearchCulture is putting this at risk. Read our report and help #ReimagineResearch 📖👉
Wow! Large survey of researchers shows: 1. Academia does not offer much security 2. There is too much competition, bullying & mental stress 3. The system favours quantity over quality, and creativity is often stifled
"While most researchers feel that their sector is producing high-quality outputs, they also report deep concerns about how sustainable the culture is in the long term." - new report on Research Culture from 1/

The have published the results of survey on research culture. One clear message is that where researchers are rewarded based on where they had published, this encourages “negative research behaviours" Dataset:
A damning indictment of research culture from - we should all be grateful to for calling this out. Now it’s up to us to do something
Remarkable statement from the head of such an important #science funder. Full report on Largest-ever survey of scientists (4000+) affirms stories we hear of human cost of research & dire state of #mentalhealth #ReimagineResearch
🔒 Job security is a key issue in today’s #ResearchCulture 🔒 Feelings of security increase with seniority, but we need to #ReimagineResearch to create a better working environment for early- and mid-career researchers. 👉

More than 4 K researchers took part in this survey. I was one of them. The overall picture is that the research system as we know is unsustainable. It favours quantity over quality stifling creativity at the expense of huge human cost and loss of talent.
Today, release their report on research culture, based on a survey of 1000s of researchers. It reveals a system in which bullying, harassment and mental health issues are rife

Researchers “say that conditions are being worsened by a complex network of incentives from government, funders and institutions that seem to focus on quantity of outputs, and narrow concepts of ‘impact’, rather than on real quality.” #AcademicChatter

Our research on #ResearchCulture found researchers feel that inappropriate funding criteria, including chasing impact, affects creativity and quality. Reducing focus on impact in individual grant applications could therefore be a win for culture👍
😢 “Just over half of researchers (53%) have sought, or have wanted to seek, professional help for depression or anxiety.”

69% of researchers think that rigour of results is considered an important research outcome by their workplace. However, one in five junior researchers and students (23%) have felt pressured by their supervisor to produce a particular result.

Reading the report on research culture. The findings should be making a lot of senior people and policy makers very uncomfortable. What are we doing to fix things?

Report ⁦⁩ paints stark picture of research environment. Sad to see, but not surprised. Also sad that I’m not surprised. There’s a lot that is really hard because of he completion for jobs & funding. As a community we need to do better.
The painful truth abt #ResearchCulture from 'These results paint a shocking portrait of the research environment... A poor research culture ultimately leads to poor research.'
This report also identifies potential ways forward. I would add to this list more managerial support & training for group leaders. Funders, universities & research institutes now need to work together to meaningfully address these issues. #researchculture

There is an assumption in Pippa Smart's pitch for journal venue that selectivity=quality but there is so much evidence that this hypercompetition is now impacting research culture in ways that are deeply detrimental to science & society #r2rconf
