Project description

Certain social groups are inadequately represented in the scientific community. This can undermine the quality of the different sciences. The project aims at the development of a theory that can help us improve the quality of scientific knowledge by paying attention to, among others, the social aspects of the processes in which such knowledge is constituted.
