Qian in his later years, has repeatedly asked the Premier: why our schools, not train the innovative and outstanding talents? Worried about the bitter. (Http://news.sina.com.cn/c/2009-11-01/133018951887 shtml) Qian After returning in 1956, never been to the United States, or Europe. And I look at the recent twelve years of research history, including China, the United States and Europe, and deeply feel that the recent five decades, the world scientific research team in expanding the research community increasingly competitive and brutal, however, for the general public to understand the innovative scientific and technological progress, very few. Take biologists since Darwin created the theory of evolution, Hooker found that cell, Watson and Crick published the double helix structure of DNA, Sanger invented DNA sequencing, very little significant research results. DNA sequencing, is founded in the 1970s (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DNA_sequencing). Is now 2011, 40 years, have not seen a revolutionary, innovative development.
in the physics community. The major significance of scientific discovery, almost some of the “ancients”, such as Galileo, Newton, Einstein. Hawking has some Hawking a lot of theory, however, is difficult to find data to support scientific research and science fiction walk.
The reason is it? Summed up the research community there are three mountains, outstanding talent, are the three big mountains to suppress, or crushed to death.
: With the growing tension of the research funding, the research community has degenerated into a “survival community. The vast majority of scientists, to the professor, the next to the newly recruited college interns, and more research as a means of livelihood, fear and trembling, in perpetuity. The fear of accidentally, lost their jobs, smashed the laboratory. So, how can best survive it? A good way, that is, layers of allegiance: Professor of allegiance to the hair research funding agencies, assistant professor of allegiance to the Head of Department or affiliated professor, postdoctoral allegiance to the professors or assistant professors, interns allegiance to the post-doctoral. Such an outcome is very clear, hair research funding agencies in the top of the mass response. Unfortunately, the issue of research funding agencies, often political institutions, and the spirit of innovation is often the low-end researchers, energetic, dare cranky. The low-end researchers in order to survive, only blindly “loyalty”, so as to hold their jobs. History, Albert Einstein published his most important works of relativistic time, is a patent-member working in a Patent Office. As a result, his research well prepared for his job. He therefore do not have allegiance to any higher level “.
: papers published centralization of power, not only inside a laboratory in the entire research community. Previous research results, the show is diversified. And each researcher has the opportunity to show their Darwin, 18 years before formally released his “Origin of Species”, more spread his ideas through letters and talking about. General laboratory only instructors can contribute, if a laboratory and a mentor with dozens of graduate students, so there is no opportunity to close mentor graduate there is no way to Contributors. From the magazine, we can truly bring the magazine of research funding concentrated in a few magazines: Science, Nature, Cell, these three families. This is a terrible situation. Constitute a monopoly in these three magazines, like “A Dream of Red Mansions”, Jia Wang history Xue, a prosperity, a loss for both sides. The world scientific community, but also become a centralized laboratory, Science, Nature, Cell, these three families, that is, the total teacher in this laboratory, the research community emperor.
three: the research paper in the form stereotyped. The world scientific community have a total of three family mentor and the emperor, then the papers provided in the form of total mentor, to become the highest instructions. Become the imperial edict. The paper format, in a word, “title quote step junction points Senate is not in English side of the station. Put it more clearly, your paper must be in English format, if you do not understand English, do not engage in scientific research. Articles must be written in accordance with the title, abstract, introduction, steps, conclusions, analysis, references format. That seems very easy, if you go look at the Instructions to Authors for each journal, and most had ten pages of dense English, each iron law, in violation of a little slap back to modify. The format of such stringent requirements, stifle innovative thinking. Because you picked up the pace, strict compliance with these articles of discipline, innovation continues to erode, only do stereotyped in form, you can be published.
above three points, that is, the three big mountains of the innovative thinking of the scientific research community. In the research community, only honestly comply with the three discipline to be able to survive, published an article to discuss the bowl of rice to eat. To be a little exaggerated, Darwin, Einstein life in today scientific community can not survive, and really become a problem.
there is oppression, there should be resistance. The birth of the real research master, you need to imagine effortless, eclectic article. Today blog provides a free platform, Li Tao today to create a blog “scientific” classification, the English name called “Science” on the blog, is to make scientific research and popularization of civilians, liberalization. This category submission, that the contributions will board. Also encourage you to Friends of Bo, also create a blog “Science” category in their own category, the English name called “Science” on the blog, similar names, as well as the blog “natural”, the English called Nature, on the blog, or The blog “cell”, the English called the Cell on the blog. Then we can freely reproduced, comment on each other research papers. The aim is to break the monopoly of the three family research, all research workers, including not a professional engaged in scientific research, people are able freely to express and exchange of scientific research papers, breaking the monopoly position of the English to break the scientific research of the stereotyped to achieve equality for all of the research community.
universal research. Research without borders, non-stereotyped, no limit! Relying on a blog platform, civil scientific research elite, will be gushing out. Behest of Qianlao, will be achieved. If you support me, please in your own blog, create their own blog “Science” magazine classified. Starting today, you e a scientist.
