Censors on campus

Playing the field

Our special report explores how wider society suffers when the space for academic freedom shrinks.

Academic freedom is at risk. From the impact of the cuts in the UK to the dangers faced by scholars in Turkey, Iraq, Belarus and Thailand, Index reports on the threats. As creationists in the US use legal means to undermine the teaching of evolution in the classroom and the push for open access divides the academic community, leading writers and commentators analyse the space for freedom.

Includes articles by: Maureen Freely on taboos in Turkey; Thomas Docherty on research by the numbers; Michael Foley on a question of success. Plus: Heather L Weaver; May Witwit; Sinfah Tunsarawuth; Bart Knols and more.
