MOSCOW, February 28 (Itar-Tass) – The Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS) has set to create a website where research works and all theses will be placed on, the FAS head, Igor Artemyev, said.
In an interview with Rossiiskaya Gazeta on Thursday, Artemyev said the FAS had prepared amendments to the law.
“At present, they [research works and theses] are written every which way. Often they are written in order to use the budget,” the FAS head explained.
“If everything is made public, scientists, who work in this sphere, will be able to study these materials and give their remarks on the website’s message board. If scientists find a bum steer, they won’t ignore it,” he said.
In addition, Artemyev noted that all texts could be checked in plagiarism. “Half of ‘wrong’ research works and theses will be out of at once. Instead normal works will be done and we face the real competition of ideas,” Artemyev said.
“Imagine what the effect will be and how much money we will be able to save due to pure transparency,” he added.
