Dear colleagues, are there any direct measures for your conducted research results in your country? Besides the real value of your contribution in scientific community, for example. in Czechia , based on the type of research output (only Journal or Conference paper which both must be under Scopus or WoS), you can receive some research score, which in other words means that you and your Institution may obtain further money for R&D from the Ministry of Education, very similar case is in Slovakia, however at each Institute, they have their own scale of research evaluation and finally you can receive also some "good" points for your citations, conference attendees and other research activities, etc. Unfortunately, this can be the one of the main motivation why writing papers and doing research ... What do you think about this let´s say "motivations" that your country tries to push on your results? What is your case?
Relevant answer
Answer
well, the motivation for writing scientific papers was 2 score (2 ponit from 20 point of thesis) for graduate students in Iran, however this grading does not considered in recent educational system anymore... and for permanent faculty members it's varied regarding the journal and conferences validity between 3-1point I guess for further promotions... Personally I do not like to write papers for getting points...I write to answer the questions challenged my mind...

My new project is on Universal Basic Income in West Africa. West Africa has 18 countries in total. I cannot possibly use the entire population as my sample, please can anyone make a suggestion of how many countries among this number that can be used to infer my findings and which can be termed accurate?

Answer
Brilliant effort Mercy - would be keen to get updates on your progress.  First though, would need a few more details about what it is that you plan to do, before we could suggest sampling strategies.  The strategies could vary from pilot on one country, to random sampling of countries from the 18, to a World Values Survey type approach where relatively "small" samples are interviewed in many countries.   Go well, Paul

But a search in google scholar showed publications in 2016: https://scholar.google.com/scholar?as_q=&as_epq=&as_oq=&as_eq=&as_occt=any&as_sauthors=&as_publication=Journal+of+Financial+Education&as_ylo=2016&as_yhi=&btnG=&hl=en&as_sdt=0%2C5.

Where was it found? In a cultic space? If so, it could be 'standing stones' representing a god or gods as in ancient Israel the massebot as well as in Africa and other places.

Myself and another 3rd year geologist at university are interested in acquiring a travel grant to expand geological knowledge somewhere. Our sights turned to Balkans and I wanted to ask to what degree has this region been geologically mapped? I can't find much information on this topic but I would assume that there are areas that have not been mapped to a fine detail? 
Any other suggestions would be much appreciated for example I had potentially thought about studying glacial changes somewhere.

Like Kurdistan, the state of New Mexico in the US has an enormous variety of visible geology that would help students appreciate the landscape scales of geologic processes. New Mexico has a great diversity of hard-rock deposits, ancient  land formation events, and readily visible evidence of Quaternary geomorphological processes. This is especially a treat for folks who come from areas with greater soil and vegetation cover on the underlying geological formations. There are glacial events recorded in features of the mountains in northern New Mexico, tectonics, volcanism, astonishing and beautiful geologic formations all across the state, fluvial geomorphology, opportunities for see soil development dynamics, it's not just deserts! Going to any region for research is an expedition through all kinds of additional geologic events in the past and the present. The Dept of Earth and Planetary Science at the Univ of New Mexico (http://epswww.unm.edu/) can certainly be able to help you idnetify an area where an undergraduate trip could contribute significant data collection. The Dept chair is Dr. Peter Fawcett (fawcett@unm.edu; tlf: 505-277-3867). There is a diverse faculty there and interest in a range of geology topics. There also have been a number of students from anthropology who have benefitted from interation with the faculty in Earth and Planetary Sciences at UNM to improve their appreciation of the importance of the possibilities in geoarchaeology. New Mexico has a range of important Pleistocene Paleoindian sites, Quaternary hunter-gatherer and small scale agricultural archaeology, more recent Pueblo sites ranging from small to huge (i.e., Chaco Canyon) sites, and many of these have surface manifestations that make it possible to see aspects of the past occupations more readily than in areas with greater and more rapid sedimentation environments. It is easy to see a broad array of archaeology as well as geology on any trips in New Mexico. There is also a diversity of vibrant living Native American cultures, heritage of the descendants of the first Spanish colonists in this region, an appreciation and promotion of opportunities to learn about these cultures, and an exciting cuisine of blending all of these influences. Especially if you are interested in Quaternary geomorphology and archaeology, I vote for an expedition to New Mexico!

I am particularly looking at the Visegrad countries of Central Europe.
Relevant answer
Answer
This is a new a refreshing topic. I begin by refering to a recent article by the trio of James OKORO, Richard INGWE and Mathew OJONG (Romanian Journal of Society & Politics) on economic-diplomatic relations between China and Nigeria. This study reveals hoe the Chinese have achieved much in terms of African market penetration without giving much to Africa/Nigeria. I'm just getting bits of these claims about the Visegrad four not being part of Africa's invasion. Some of us have spoken of European invasion of Africa in pretty monolithic ways/language. I realise now how the Visegrad four have been concerned about such thinking. I would presume that the interest of the Visegrad four remain their project and any success would arise from how hard each of them or four of them combined could undertake a joint economic diplomatic campaign i.e. programme. Is Visegrad an economic/political bloc of any kind? I would like to know more about this and if possible share some research time with experts from the region (Visegrad) maybe you. Conclusively, let me ask: what could be any credentials of the Visegrad in terms of undertaking the insidious neo-liberalistic offensive on Africa. Again, I draw your attention to my article (Ingwe, Ikeji & Ojong) on neo-liberalism and the role it has played in twarthing sustainable development efforts in Africa
