This is the second of two volumes of source documents commissioned by the National Science Foundation in preparing the second 5-Year Outlook on Science and Technology for transmission to the Congress. This volume consists of the views of individuals selected by the Committee on Science, Engineering and Public Policy of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) and the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) and 11 Federal agency reports. The papers written for the AAAS committee deal with public policy problems associated with science and technology. Those written for SSRC focus on current developments in social and behavioral science disciplines. The federal agency papers deal with anticipated problems, opportunities and constraints related to science, technology, and public policy from the perspectives of the missions of these agencies.
