In book titled "India - Science and Technology" (volume 3) edited by National Institute of Science, Technology and Development Studies (CSIR-NISTADS), various scholars and policy analysts discuss different dimensions of the Indian science, technology and innovation (STI). This book is systematically organized into four themes: (a) S&T Human Resources, (b) S&T and Industry, (c) S&T Outputs and (d) Rural India: S&T for Skills and Employment. Some of the remarkable chapters included in this volume are namely: Open Educational Resources: Policy Perspectives and National Initiatives; National Scientific Data Frameworks and Knowledge Portals; Open Access to Scientific Knowledge: Policy Perspectives and National Initiatives, written by Dr. Anup Kumar Das. This is the biennial report, while its earlier versions were published in 2008 (volume 1) and 2012 (volume 2) co-published by CSIR-NISTADS. This book is helpful for scholars in science and public policies, S&T policymakers, policy analysts, educationists, and institution builders.
