The Burden of Knowledge

‘As we accumulate more knowledge, more knowledge must be known before new contributors can contribute.’

It’s called ‘the burden of knowledge‘.

And that’s why, the average age of Nobel Prize-winning work is now 48 compared to 40, as it was before 1905.

Interestingly, the average age at dissertation is 33, which leaves a little window of potential for truly ground-breaking research.

Often, it is the dissertation that lay the foundations for a successful career!  (see infographic – courtesy: Kyata Tobias, Online PhD Programs)

The bottom-line message?

It may just pay off to write it well! 🙂
