Scientific Research in India

Nature volume 145, page 65 (13 January 1940) | Download Citation



THE progress of research in India can be followed by the help of the Indian Science Abstracts, which is an annotated bibliography arranged by subjects. Some of these bear closely on the economic development of the country, and their principal interest is local rather than general. Part 1 for the year 1937 covers mathematics, physics, geology and botany (National Institute of Sciences of India, September 1939). Mathematics has 86 papers, five of which deal with Indian geodesical problems, physics has 189, only a dozen of which deal with local meteorological or geophysical subjects; geology has 316 and botany 286, dealing almost exclusively with Indian problems.
