Activities

    • Change of roles

      We all change roles in different life situations. This is not different in science, as the Covid-19 situation shows particularly clearly with regard to the role of scientists, for example as communicators and advisors of politicians. But role changes are also omnipresent as an object of science. Issue 27 of JAM approaches the topic from different perspectives.

    • Dissent!

      What would the sciences be without controversy - after all, science is also a competition of theses, methods and ideas. This is the starting point for the new issue of the JAM, which is devoted to dissent between various disciplinary perspectives. To this end, we have compiled strategies for effective debates from a wealth of historical disputes in science. There is also room for controversy over the redesign of the JAM, which is being published in this issue, for the first time, as a poster.

      Topics:

      Lukas Haffert, Oliver Rymek, Erik Schilling, Ricarda Winkelmann
