Extending the Mertonian Norms: Scientists' Subscription to Norms of Research
Anderson, Melissa S.; Ronning, Emily A.; De Vries, Raymond; Martinson, Brian C.
Journal of Higher Education, v81 n3 p366-393 May-Jun 2010
This analysis, based on focus groups and a national survey, assesses scientists' subscription to the Mertonian norms of science and associated counternorms. It also supports extension of these norms to governance (as opposed to administration), as a norm of decision-making, and quality (as opposed to quantity), as an evaluative norm. (Contains 1 figure, 1 table, and 4 notes.)
