Hey Anna, just a note that the "science faltering" article looks at the crude and, to my mind, useless metric of the total number of articles published per dollar of funding. It's much harder but much more useful to consider actual advancement of scientific knowledge. I'd love to see that study!

Point well taken. Thanks Andy!

  • Isak is a space to celebrate tales and truth in the curious, joyful way embodied by the writer for which it is named. The name "Isak," after all, means "laughter," as she was fond of pointing out.

    By tales, I mean fiction (especially short fiction), as well as other literary and artistic narratives. By truth, I mean the world in which we live. I especially have my eye on creative social justice.
