Abstract: An interview to combat publication pressure

Science is currently in a crisis. Results across the board do not replicate, null results are hardly published and sloppy science to get favourable results are at an all time high. At the heart of this issue lies publication pressure the pressure for scientists to publish as many articles as possible. To solve this issue, I propose a performance interview to make a more qualitative evaluation. Furthermore, an interview could better take into account all different goals of a scientist: science, education, and societal benefit.
