Some have argued that the so-called “Priority rule” in science is best thought of as a behavior regulator for the scientific community, which benefits society by adequately structuring the distribution of intellectual labor across pre-existing research programs. To the contrary, considerations about how news of scientific developments spreads throughout a scientific community at large suggest that the priority rule is something else entirely, which disadvantages historically underrepresented or otherwise marginalized social groups.
