  42. 42. Our universities, in particular, should be directing their research focus to address the development and social needs of our communities. The impact of their researchshould be measured by how much difference itmakes to the needs of our communities, rather than by just how many international citations researchers receive in their publications.Blade Nzimande, SA Minster of Higher Education and Training, Women in Science Awards. 2010
  43. 43. Do we want to advise our colleagues in the developing world to replicate a journalsystem that we think is on the way out? Or do we want to encourage them to adoptsomething that is far more current–that iscutting edge and is going to lead the way?Leslie Chan – Interview with Hassan Masum: Center for Global Health R&D Assessment
