  Publishing decisions in the academic world: Nero fiddles on
Titel: Publishing decisions in the academic world: Nero fiddles on
Auteur: Meehan, Eugene J.
Verschenen in: Communicatio
Paginering: Jaargang 17 (1991) nr. 2 pagina's 41-45
Jaar: 1991
Inhoud: Eugene J. Meehan is Curator's Professor of Political Science and Public Policy Administration at the University of Missouri, St. Louis. He is widely known for his volume of work on reasoned argument in social science, otherwise also known as applied epistemology, or critical thinking. The intellectual framework that he developed over many years is aimed at providing the cognitive requirements for making defensible decisions, especially as they relate to human purposes. In this short article he assesses the problem of publishing decisions, in particular as it relates to academic journals. He argues that commercial interests, essentialist and “purposeless” conceptions of scientific knowledge, and, some other factors as well, contribute to the sad state of affairs that dominate in academic publishing circles. As a remedy he argues for a set of epistemological and methodological criteria, stated in metalanguage, that can be used in order to assess publications critically in terms of the purposes that it pursues. Eugene Meehan was visiting fellow in the Department of Political Sciences at the University of South Africa during August 1990.
