Briefly, this mechanism is based on the selective publication of fragments rather than complete treatises. It is this selective concern with fragments of knowledge, represented primarily by journal articles, that enables science to function effectively and is responsible for its phenomenal growth and pre-eminence. }, URL = { http://rpss.inoe.ro/articles/86 }, eprint = { http://rpss.inoe.ro/articles/86/file }, journal = { Revista de Politica Stiintei si Scientometrie – Serie Noua } }
