AbstractThe author presents three interviews –two with researchers and one with a representative from industry–discussion instances where researchers are pressured to release results prematurely. Based on these interviews, the author makes recomendations on how to deal with these kinds of situations and also briefly looks at the norms that exist in industry and academia for research and communication and the tensions these can cause for a scientist working simultaneously in both realms.
