The first workshop of the recently established Chemical Sciences Roundtable (CSR), “Assessing the Value of Research in the Chemical Sciences,” was held in Washington, D.C., in September 1997. The topic of discussion was an issue of long-standing importance that has taken on even greater significance since the Government Performance and Results Act (GPRA) was enacted in 1993. This volume presents the results of that workshop.


Support for this project was provided by National Science Foundation under Grant No. CHE-9630106, the National Institutes of Health under Contract No. N01-OD-4-2139, and the U.S. Department of Energy under Grant No. DE-FG02-95ER14556.

Any opinions, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this material are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation, the National Institutes of Health, or the U.S. Department of Energy.

NOTICE: The project that is the subject of this report was approved by the Governing Board of the National Research Council, whose members are drawn from the councils of the National Academy of Sciences, the National Academy of Engineering, and the Institute of Medicine. The members of the workshop organizing committee responsible for the report were chosen for their special competences and with regard for appropriate balance.
