Language – Bane or Boon to Research

Language & research
Monolingualism in Research – probably you haven’t thought of it much (i hadn’t given it much thought either..)

Little has been done to assess the impact of monolingualism in science, let alone deal with it, but a session at the AAAS meeting in February at least laid out the issues. The participants in that panel have been kind enough to supply me with their slides, which can be accessed at http://www.the-scientist.com/languagebarrier.

May be its time you see what the fuss is all about.
