Publication pressure in medical research in the Netherlands (in Dutch)

Last modified: May 10, 2017

Medical research in the Netherlands is likely to get stuck. This is evident from a series of group interviews with medical researchers at all stages of their careers. Especially the unwritten rule that PhD-candidates should publish at least four articles, creates great pressure on all concerned. There is hardly any time to apply the gained knowledge in practice.

The report is in Dutch.
