    By coincidence, two of the papers in this issue deal with issues of goals and values — from quite different perspectives and for different subsets of the total population of people engaged in RD&E (Research, Development, and Engineering). Toren looks at differences in values among scientists with respect to the institution of science itself versus its role in a larger social scheme. ... View full abstract»

    There are very few situations in practice where the selection problem is simply one of choosing one or more projects from a larger set of proposals which have been previously well defined. More often than not proposals are developed in the context of a need, and their characteristics modified as they are tested against the objectives which they have to meet.

    It is the aim of this paper to show through an empirical study that an assertion of axiomatic goal divergence between managers and scientists is an illusory dichotomy. More specifically, it is the hypothesis of this paper that the similarities in goal orientations between managers and scientists in research laboratories greatly outnumber the differences. The study underlying this paper involved a ... View full abstract»

    This study examines the orientations of scientists toward two value systems: the classical scientific ethos and the more recent social ethic of science. The sample is comprised of Soviet and United States scientists who immigrated to Israel in the early 1970's. Comparing Soviet and American scientists, it is found that the two groups generally resemble each other regarding the standards of scienti... View full abstract»
