01. Rafał Górski: Are we dealing with scientific prostitution in Poland?

Prof. Janusz Mikuła: I am a very specific person and I answer: yes, in the case of a part of the scientific community yes.

02. Rafał Górski: What does it mean?

Prof. Janusz Mikuła: This means that strictly defined research services are carried out under the thesis assumed in advance, required by the client. This can be said in a simple, general way, but there are many specific moments where such prostitution occurs. It looks a little different in the world of exact sciences and certainly completely different in sciences such as economics and political science. Still different in sociology. It is more difficult in exact sciences, although it does happen.

Attention: Translation of the Polish language into English by Antoinette Janssen via Google. The text is edited on some spots, to create sentences without the often by Google created abracadabra. Please check my interpretations, by using Google Translate yourself, and comparing the original Google Translation with mine. Let me know if you find mistakes in my interpretations. Sometimes it is impossible to understand the original text behind a Google translation, because Google translates the exact words, not the typical expression for something, as it is used in the original language, in this case: Polish. I have changed the translation of some specific terms into the original terms and linked it to a page that is related with it.
