The previous chapter has served as an introduction of the global scenario that exists today in science and academia in general, scenario that will be further examined into its particular facets in the following chapters. Scientific research that leads to clear results relies on obtaining large numbers of experimental observations and reflecting in depth about those observations and associated theories and hypotheses. This, however, is becoming unfeasible in current times due to the lack of time and funds. The former, lack of time, in my opinion is most troublesome, because there is research that needs not much money (e.g. theoretical investigations) but all research, cheap or expensive, needs time.
