This week’s longread is not too long, actually, but it’s a nice exploration of a vexing topic, through the lens of a new tool that might help shift the dynamic in a very useful direction. Check out Reforming Research Assessment: A Tough Nut to Crack, published earlier this week. And follow the links in her piece to read more about the miserable culture that permeates research, as well as the deep thoughts at Center for Open Science that animate the release of tools like the TOP Factor.

Have a great weekend!
