We offer an alphabetical guide into the opaque and mystical world of research
Many are called to do research, but few are chosen. How is this possible in an era of improved gender equality, educational access and global connectivity? The answer lies in the secret “Da Vinci Code” of research: the unwritten interpretation of the alphabet of research that touches us all through serial rejection of grant applications and scientific articles. Out of a sense of duty to fellow researchers, and with just a subtle hint of projection, we have chosen to share the secrets of this Code with you.
