Science for Development
"This short, thoughtful and easy-to-read book invites us to rethink our prejudices and to abandon practices more appropriate to the world as it was decades ago. All science policymakers should read it, especially those who believe that science is a public good and who want high-quality, big science research to be truly global." --Graham Farmelo, Times Higher Education Supplement "A very important scholarly work... a must read book for scholars in collaboration studies and those involved in science policy framework." --Sujit Bhattacharya, International Society for Scientometrics and Informetrics Newsletter
