Languages of publication
The opinions of scholars about their own academic and literary achievements, their evaluation of the state of science and scientific writing as well as tips addressed to the young adepts of science are an important source of information about the history of science and scientific writing. While discussing the issue of a scientific book and the scientific publishing movement, such statements deserve closer attention of bibliologists. The article presents the views and recommendations of a prominent biologist Jan Tur (1875–1942) that concern writing and publishing scientific works and are included in his book Nauka i uczony (The science and a scholar). In the light of the condition of the contemporary movement of scientific publication, the scientist’s opinions from over 100 years ago on the necessity of writing productivity, languages and types of the scientific publication as well as collectivity of works become up-to-date and stimulate for discussion.
