A PhD should be about improving society, not chasing academic kudos | Julian Kircherr
Too much research is aimed at insular academic circles rather than the real world.

Mental health issues are rife: approximately one-third of PhD students are at risk ofhaving or developing a psychiatric disorder like depression. The high level of dropouts is similarly worrying – and possibly another symptom of the same problem. Research suggests that on average50% of PhD students leave graduate school without finishing – with numbers higher at some institutions.Wha...

Desperate Women, Desperate Doctors and the Surprising History Behind the Breastfeeding Debate
For something that’s supposed to be a natural process, breastfeeding can be surprisingly complicated — and not only for new mothers literally struggling with the process. Breastfeeding debates can leave families feeling embattled from both sides, but controversy over who should breastfeed and for how long and where shows no signs of letting up. For example, in July, news broke that the United States had fought a seemingly uncontroversial resolution in support of breastfeeding at the World Health Assembly earlier this spring. But, though such controversies can seem like a distinctly modern problem, breastfeeding...
