Indicators: Purpose and limitations

Science and technology indicators are quantitative units of measurement of the parameters defining the status and dynamics of research and technology systems. Possible uses for these indicators are highly diversified: as a national overview for science policy makers or legislative authorities, strategic analyses for decision taking by research institutions, S&T surveys, programme evaluation, etc. An increasing number of leaders in S&T are thus confronted with decisions and choices which have to be based on such indicators.
