In a text that has attracted much attention, David Rubenson from Stanford Cancer Institute makes the provocative statement that scientists ”don’t communicate well with each other”.
According to Rubenson ”typical biomedical research presentation has become a dizzying whirlwind of incomprehensible slides, presented at lightening speed and labeled with unreadable font sizes and abbreviations known only to the speaker.” Publications also pose problems as ”many scientists report they don’t have time to evaluate or even read the deluge of articles coming from the growing number of print and on-line journals”.
Do you agree with David Rubenson – is there a communication crisis in research?
