AbstractThe controversial question of who controls research stands at the center of a growing number of legal and administrative disputes which raise critical issues of professional sovereignty, scientific secrecy, and proprietary rights. Although the idea of knowledge as property is not new, the scale and changing nature and structure of contemporary American research has intensified this debate. These and other aspects of this multifaceted problem are discussed in this seven-chapter book, which presents a balanced discussion of the complex issues from varying points of view, including the interests of scientists, the right of citizens to be informed, and the legitimate security needs of government and industry.
