Professor Biagioli Interviewed in Le Monde

Professor Mario Biagioli was interviewed by the French daily newspaper Le Monde for an article on trends in scientific research. Biagioli talked about recent trends related to the effort to measure the impact of scientific articles using quantitative metadata-based metrics. Biagioli said such efforts fail to measure the quality of research and can encourage researchers to “play with the metrics” to get the best scores.

Professor Biagioli, an internationally renowned expert in the fields of Intellectual Property and the History of Copyright, is the founding Director of the Center for Innovation Studies at UC Davis.
