The Division of Science Resources Studies (SRS) of the National Science Foundation has a legislatively mandated responsibility for the collection, compilation, and analyses of information related to science and technology, inputs, outputs, and impact. This constitutes a broad charter requiring diverse activities. The products of these activities are of utility to a heterogeneous clientele, varying from governmental science and technology policymakers to institutional managers and research analysts. This compilation of summaries has been prepared to provide various SRS users with a rapid overview of all current and recently completed SRS projects. All projects summarized in this publication were either ongoing or completed during FY 1982. The summaries include information on objectives, findings, methodology, authorship, and resulting publications and availability. Projects are organized in the following groups: (1) overview projects; (2) human resources (scientists, engineers, technicians), including supply, utilization, and special studies; (3) funding of science and technology, including government, industry, academic organizations (universities, colleges, and other non-profit organizations); and (4) outputs and impacts. Intramural (SRS) and extramural publications are listed in two appendices. (Author/JN)
