    THE LAST ARTICLE in the last issue (Gerald Gordon, “The Problem of Assessing Scientific Accomplishment: A Potential Solution,” December, 1963 TRANSACTIONS) dealt with a critical aspect of the over-all problem of assessing the role of Research and Development in the firm. The argument goes something like this: if one believes that “good” R & D can contribute to th... View full abstract»

    Despite the growing emphasis placed on research these days, it must be kept in mind that, unless it is properly directed, there is no guarantee that will be effective. Today, research management calls especially for examining the management of the total resources of research to achieve fundamental aims. Whether in the weapons industry to preserve the defense of our country, or in the industrial an... View full abstract»

    The following study presents and tests a model designed to explain the R&D investment decision of firms, tries to explain the role of certain variables after attempting to isolate the effects of other variables that are not specified in the model and, finally, attempts to estimate departure from the desired level of R & D expenditure and the coefficients of important variables that c...

    The results of a field test of a procedure for evaluating research projects is reported in this paper. The procedure, based on what is termed an expected value model, considers the following decision elements: 1) the environment of the problem, 2) the decision maker, 3) his objectives, and 4) his alternatives. The decision maker's alternatives, in this case a number of potential research projects,... View full abstract»

    The individual's age in relation to scientific achievement was examined with scientists and engineers in eleven university, industrial, and government research laboratories. A series of bimodal curves appeared, peaking sooner in research-oriented than development-oriented labs. The data suggest that the effects of age may be modified by both external and internal “research climates.” View full abstract»
