In Science We Trust?‘ was a talk held in Cambridge this weekend as a part of Cambridge Science Festival, which runs from the 10th to 23rd March this year.

The panel talked about, amongst other publishing issues, these 3 main topics:
1. Why some topics are more fashionable than others?
2. What is the place of the so-called negative results in science publishing?
3. What should be considered first: the Impact Factor of the journal in which a paper is published or the number of citations for this paper?
