“Undemocracy”: inequalities in science

Publication Abstract

Xie, Yu. 2014. "“Undemocracy”: inequalities in science." Science, 344(6186): 809-810.

In recent years, academic scholarship and public discourse have become increasingly preoccupied with social and economic inequality, which has risen in many countries. It is surprising that more attention has not been paid to the large, changing inequalities in the world of scientific research. I suggest that although the basic structure of inequalities in science has remained unchanged, their intensities and mechanisms may have been altered by recent forces of globalization and internet technology.
