Introduction: Commercialization of Academic Science and a New Agenda for Science Education
Irzik, Gürol
Science & Education, v22 n10 p2375-2384 Oct 2013
Certain segments of science are becoming increasingly commercialized. This article discusses the commercialization of academic science and its impact on various aspects of science. It also aims to provide an introduction to the articles in this special issue. I briefly describe the major factors that led to this phenomenon, situate it in the context of the changing social regime of science and give a thumbnail sketch of its costs and benefits. I close with a general discussion of how the topic of commercialization of academic science is relevant to science education.
