How the Nobel Prizes skew science


Recommended Posts

I have definitely heard that the Nobel favours "fast individuals." In other words, you want to be the first to publish something, and you want a singular (or a few names at most) attached. There could be hundreds of people working on a problem, but one middle-manager scientist up the chain is going to get the credit for all the work done by lab students, etc.
