[en] A gatekeeper is an individual or collective actor who is in a position to control access to resources and rewards relevant in a particular social system. The term’s usage in the sociology of science goes back to Robert K. Merton, who defines gatekeeping as one of the four complementary roles in the role set of scientists and scholars. Gate-keeping activities are relevant in different arenas of scholarship such as between scientific masters and apprentices, in collective mentoring programs, in publishing and in research funding.
