Trust is hard to earn and easy to lose. This is well-known. Public trust in research is decreasing – why? Is it a problem? Have ghostwriting, salami publications, misconduct and distrust something to do with this loss? Is the reason simply that contemporary science seems to focus on productivity more than creativity?

From various perspectives the papers and presentations in this volume focus on the ways in which factors affecting distrust and trust, including criteria of quality, are identified, measured and dealt with by universities and other institutions. But the authors do not merely identify a set of problems. They also discuss what is currently being done – and what could and should be done – to deal with the problems.

Göran Hermerén, Kerstin Sahlin & Nils-Eric Sahlin (eds.), Lund and Uppsala University.

The volume is a collection of 11 papers and presentations by participants in a symposium at Kungl. Vitterhetsakademien (The Royal Swedish Academy of Letters, History and Antiquities).
