The National Science Foundation Division of Science Resources Studies (SRS) 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 project summaries has been prepared to provide various SRS users with a rapid overview of all current and recently completed SRS projects. All projects were either ongoing or completed during fiscal year 1983. 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), subdivided according to characteristics, education, employment, and projections; (3) funding of science and technology, subdivided according to government, industry, and universities, colleges, and other nonprofit organizations; (4) outputs and impacts, subdivided according to innovations and inventions, bibliometrics, economic implications, and other areas. Lists of principal investigators, and intramural (SRS) and extramural publications are provided in appendices. (JN)
