The National Science Foundation's Divison of Science Resources Studies (SRS) has a legislatively mandated responsibility to collect, compile, and analyze information related to science and technology resources and impacts of those resources. The mandate consistitutes 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 1984. The summaries include information on objectives, findings, methodology, authorship, and resulting publications/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, universities and colleges, and others; (4) outputs and impacts, subdivided according to innovations and inventions, bibliometrics, economic implications, and other areas; and (5) international science and technology.
