Ethics in Science and Environmental Politics. 2008


This is a special themed issue on “The use and misuse of bibliometric indices in evaluating scholarly performance Editors” edited by Howard Browman and Konstas Stergiou 

Quantifying the relative performance of individual scholars, groups of scholars, departments, institutions, provinces/states/regions and countries has become an integral part of decision-making over research policy, funding allocations, awarding of grants, faculty hirings, and claims for promotion and tenure. Bibliometric indices (based mainly upon citation counts), such as the h-index and the journal impact factor, are heavily relied upon in such assessments. There is a growing consensus, and a deep concern, that these indices — more-and-more often used as a replacement for the informed judgement of peers — are misunderstood and are, therefore, often misinterpreted and misused. The articles in this ESEP Theme Section present a range of perspectives on these issues. Alternative approaches, tools and metrics that will hopefully lead to a more balanced role for these instruments are presented.

DISEASES OF AQUATIC ORGANISMS. 2007

Special themed issue on the “Welfare of aquatic organisms” edited by Howard Browman and Anne Berit Skiftesvik

Large-scale commercial production of aquatic animals has accelerated during the past decade, both in terms of total biomass produced and diversity of organisms cultured. As a result, the husbandry practices applied to these animals — and the welfare states associated with their use — are emerging issues in national and international science programs, organizations concerned with the treatment of animals, and amongst consumers. This DAO Special brings together a range of perspectives on aquatic animal welfare, from pragmatic empirical science to ethics, philosophy, and animal rights activism.
