The UNESCO Science Report 2005 is the fourth in a series which periodically presents a global overview of science. It reviews the state of science around the world through the eyes of an independent team of experts. A series of informative and thought-provoking essays identifies and discusses emerging trends in scientific research and higher education.
Each chapter describes how research and development are organized in a given region or country. Who is performing research and development today? Where and with what means? What are the new priorities?
Authoritative and readable, the UNESCO Science Report 2005 brings together an extensive number of figures and tables to help understand how contemporary issues are shaping science.
