Resumen

Se analizan los hábitos y prácticas de comunicación científica de la nueva ola de investigadores españoles a partir de los resultados de una encuesta de ámbito internacional (2019). Los resultados de un centenar de contribuciones confirman los obtenidos previamente en entrevistas realizadas entre 2016 y 2018 en España en el marco del Proyecto Harbingers, y ponen de manifiesto similitudes y diferencias con los resultados obtenidos de la encuesta mencionada en otros países cubiertos por el Proyecto en su segunda fase. Los investigadores españoles presentan dos caras contradictorias: Son innovadores en sus percepciones aunque no tanto en sus prácticas relativas al acceso abierto y al uso de las redes sociales. Sin embargo, sus actitudes y hábitos nuevos no son desinteresados, están motivados por promocionar el trabajo propio y conseguir el reconocimiento. En este sentido, se muestran conservadores. La competición en que se encuentran inmersos para conseguir un trabajo estable y, por tanto, la necesidad de focalizarse en los méritos que les van a ser evaluados les limita para poder disfrutar del proceso de aprendizaje y dedicarse a las prácticas de ciencia abierta a las que su generación se muestra proclive de forma natural.
