عنوان مقاله [English]
Is research governable? If the answer is positive, these questions are raised: Does governance of research mean injecting ideology into it and ordering it? The researcher's freedom to seek the truth is limited by what kind of mechanisms? what is the place of the norms of the scientific community, the expectations of external authorities, including the government and society, the demands of customers such as industry in these constraints, and in what process does the researcher become accountable? The purpose of this article is to discuss about these questions and similar topics. This article is a written debate between the author of an article entitled " Governance of Research: A Theoretical Framework" (Mojtaba Javadi) and its reviewer (Narges Naraghi), which was published in the same issue of the Science and Technology Quarterly. The author of the mentioned article is send a letter to the editor of the journal in protest of the reasons for its rejection by the reviewer and entered into a debate with the reviewer at his discretion. Through the mediation of the editor, several correspondences were made between the author and the reviewer, whose contents are presented in this article without any interference. In short, by referring to the use of some sentences in the article, the reviewer has argued that the author is seeking to defend ideological science and the necessity of injecting values into research, and this defense is also a result of a misunderstanding of the approach of recent social science paradigms about the presence of values in the research and thus the article has been rejected. By presenting the sources of the sentences, the author has argued that the reviewer's understanding was not sympathetic and whether the research is ideological or not, is not the subject of this article, and then by proposing four binary concepts, that is, "Science/Research", "Direction/Ideological", "The position of the researcher/ The position of government and science policy actors" and "description/prescription", the theoretical position of the article and the nature of research governance have been described
