Academia’s Big Five: a normative taxonomy for the epistemic responsibilities of universities

This paper proposes a normative taxonomy of what we call the ‘Big Five’ in academia: five core epistemic responsibilities of universities. Epistemic responsibilities are responsibilities that have to do with the attainment of knowledge, understanding, insight, rationality, and explanation. The paper characterizes the Big Five in some detail and explains why they are core epistemic responsibilities of universities.

"F1000Research is a great platform to publish innovative research: the review process is transparent and the fact that all versions of the article and the reviews can be consulted online provides unique opportunities to improve the rigour with which we do our academic work."
