Sir Paul Nurse:
“More consideration needs to be given to highly significant scholarly impact, that is, work which has a major influence on a field, resulting in a ‘paradigm shift’ to use the language of Thomas Kuhn.”
“The research endeavour has to be permeable and fluid, allowing the ready transfer of ideas, skills, people in all directions between sectors, research disciplines, the span of the research endeavour, and its potential beneficiaries.”
I would like academic prose, where possible, to “grab the imagination”.
