Russia: Plan to increase research at national universities

The government is aiming to improve the position of Russian science in the global arena by accelerating research activities at national universities.

According to a recent report by Thomson Reuters, Russian science lags significantly behind most countries in the G20. Statistics show that over the past decade, the share of Russian papers in the Web of Science international database has dropped from 3% to 2.1% – and the papers go largely unnoticed by foreign scientists.

Russia: Scientists accuse journals of ‘political’ rejections

Leading scientific journals from Europe and the United States have started to groundlessly reject papers written by Russian scientists and postgraduates, according to some well-known researchers of the Russian Academy of Sciences and publishers of physics and chemistry magazines.

Scientists have said that in recent months, many Western journals have started to send back papers written by Russian scientists and graduates without conducting any review – and have speculated that this could be related to sanctions imposed against Russia.

Russian science: US sanctions put research at risk

Scientific collaboration during the cold war was one of the few links between the United States and the Soviet Union. It is sad and ironic that today's partnerships may now bear the brunt of US sanctions as a result of the situation in Ukraine (see Nature 508, 162; 2014).

Putin Decree Shakes Up Russian Science Funding

Putin Decree Shakes Up Russian Science Funding | Higher Education and academic research | Scoop.it

In another blow to the once-dominant Russian Academy of Sciences, the science ministry makes all funding competitive, possibly starving academy institutes.

President Vladimir Putin last week signed a clutch of decrees that could have a profound effect on science in Russia. One stipulates that all state research funding should be distributed via a competitive grants system. Previously, research institutes received government support to cover things such as upkeep of buildings and utility bills, but that could now stop, as will the government’s so-called state targeted programs, which single out certain areas for direct financial support.

Russian science: Academy reform needs a reality check

Government reform of the Russian Academy of Sciences is timely (Nature 499, 5–6; 2013). But it must also be realistic. Simply imposing foreign models could be costly, inefficient and have disastrous consequences for the country's scientific community.

Russian Scientists Decry New International Funding Rules

Russian researchers are up in arms over a government decree issued last month which turns the process of issuing research grants into a bureaucratic nightmare for international foundations. The decree introduces new regulations according to which any organization that wants to award grants to Russian researchers must obtain permission from the Ministry of Education and Science for every grant. "No self-respecting grant-giving agency would deal with Russia on such conditions," says Andrey Tsaturyan of Moscow State University's Mechanics Research Institute.(...) - ScienceInsider, by Vladimir Pokrovsky on 13 May 2013
