Chapter Summary

This chapter presents the recommendation, concerning the international standardization of statistics on science and technology, adopted by the General Conference of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), meeting in Paris, held on 27 November 1978. Member States should bring this Recommendation to the attention of authorities and services responsible for collecting and communicating statistics relating to science and technology. This Recommendation relates to statistics designed to provide standardized information in each Member State on certain scientific and technological (S&p;T) activities, and particularly on research and experimental development (R&p;D). These statistics should cover all national institutions that perform or finance such activities. The basic international statistics should be updated biennially. It would be desirable for Member States that can do so to update certain data annually so that variations in their R&p;D effort can be seen.

Keywords: international standardization; research and experimental development (R&p;D); scientific and technological (S&p;T) activities; UNESCO
