For discussions on Open Science TV.
Scientific findings make our life better, safer and more comfortable. It is scientists can invent a cure for the global COVID-19 problem. But not everybody is aware of difficulties for scientists to make it possible. Academic community is suffering from luck of funding, transparency, reproducibility and toxic atmosphere. Some of these problems arise from commercial companies creating and promoting superficial rankings and holding on author rights from published scientific articles which are put behind paywalls and sold back to universities at steep prices. Adding to this the fact that most of scientific research is funded from taxpayers, makes the current system of scientific development dysfunctional and inefficient. Open Science TV is a new independent scientific media platform. Our goal is to promote Open Science principles as a potential cure to these problems and give a word to scientists.
