Will Homebody Researchers Turn Japan Into a Scientific Backwater?
A-IMBN would like to inform readers of A-IMBN Research of the publication of a recent article in Science by Dennis Normile, on the increasing trend amongst young Japanese researchers to further their career at home rather than studying overseas. The article looks at the reasons behind this phenomenon and examines the likely medium to long-term implications for the future of Japanese science and contains comments from Prof. Ken-ichi Arai, the Founding President of A-IMBN.
