UNESCO Science Report
The UNESCO Science Report was launched in 1993 under the name of World Science Report. Since then, five reports have provided a periodic review of the state of science around the world through the eyes of an independent team of experts. A series of informative and thought-provoking essays identifies and discusses emerging trends in scientific research and higher education, by country or by region. The series was interrupted in 2000 by the decision of UNESCO’s Executive Board to re-examine UNESCO’s policy for world reports. The Board decided to launch a series of world reports on cross-cutting themes related to UNESCO’s work. To avoid confusion with the new series, the report on global science policy trends was renamed the UNESCO Science Report. the reports may be consulted online (see below).
