Research is done (mostly at universities) and funded (publicly and privately) in order to advance scientific and scholarly knowledge as well as to produce public benefits (technological and biomedical applications as well as educational and cultural ones). Research and researchers are accordingly funded not only to conduct their research, but to make their findings public, by publishing them. Their employment, salaries, careers and research funding depend on publishing their findings. This is what is often called "publish or perish."
