Science Policy Reviews, Volume 5 Number 1.
Simons, Eugene M.
Presented in this quarterly publication are reviews, highlights, and 391 annotated bibliographic references from current and international literature in the area of science and public policy. The term "science" is used here to denote both engineering and technology as well as science. The literature reviewed includes books, reports, and periodical articles and focuses on matters of broad public policy; that of a highly technical and narrowly specialized nature is not covered. In addition to the bibliographic entries, this issue includes four articles: (1) "Federal R&D Programs: Who Picks 'Em?" a description of how a proposal filters through departments and agencies of the Executive Branch and the U. S. Congress to wind up as a national program or in the wastebasket; (2)"Technology Assessment," its history, significance, and potential; (3) "Straight from the Top," text of the first Presidential message on science and technology calling for new actions to enhance R&D in all sectors--government, universities, and industry; and (4) "Soviet Science Policy," how the USSR is struggling with its science policy problems. A current booklist recaps books that appeared during the previous year, and the list of publications screened includes publisher name and address and subscription information. (BL)
