Abstract

Describes abstracting and indexing services for science and technology produced in India. Analyses the services with respect to such aspects as frequency, nature of publications covered, chronological development, and subject coverage. Concludes that most of the services are selective and that engineering and technology are better covered than are pure sciences. Recommends that the coverage of these services should be broader‐based, if anything approaching total bibliographic control of scientific and technical literature in India is to be achieved.
