Comment Re:Publish or perish (Score 2) 123

It's not just tenure, even getting a good faculty position is dependent on publication of research in high impact journals. I think that the major conflict of interest in my field, basic biomedical research, rather than funding by pharma etc, is the necessity to generate data suitable for publishing in big journal to get/keep jobs. I'm pretty sure this is going to get very messy if something isn't done to address the problem.
