04 Dec Keynote presentation at AIMOS 2020
Tatsuya gave a keynote presentation “Is non-English-language literature important in science?” at the second annual meeting of the Association for Interdisciplinary Meta-research and Open Science (AIMOS).
The under-use of non-English-language literature in today’s scientific activities is often based on the three common assumptions: (i) most scientific knowledge is available in English, (ii) non-English-language literature is diminishing, and (iii) English-language science represents a random subset of non-English-language science. In this presentation, he talked about the progress of the translatE project, showing that none of the three common assumptions is actually supported by evidence, at least in ecology and conservation.
