Summary "This book is an organizational study of the social aspects of science in India focusing of the determinants of productivity of Indian scientists. The book describes the emerging factors responsible for the productivity levels of organic chemists in India in the context of the transformation from academic science to post academic science and more so entrepreneurial science. This book considers new factor like communication technology as an enabling tool to enhance the productivity levels of the scientists and indicates how the differential access to the same could lead to/reinforce social inequality in Indian science. The present empirical work is an outcome of a study of Indian scientists by deploying both quantitative and quantitative methods. This book provides with an estimation of the relative contribution of determinants of productivity of organic chemists across different contexts of organization in the Indian context and examines the consequences upon the career pattern of scientists. The findings of this study are policy-oriented suggestions aimed at ensuring social equality among scientists in India."--Publisher's description.
