Abstract : The investigation is part of a continuing study of the adaptations of scientists in different organizational contexts. The investigation consists of 2 aspects: (1) the effect on the individual of constraints that research organizations impose; and (2) the consequences on the organization produced by individual research on the part of these scientific employees. Five government organizations were studied. Data was collected by interviews and questionnaires. Response data is presented in tabular form and copies of the questionnaire and interview guides are included. In analyzing the data, the dynamics of interaction within each organization were assessed and generalizations were made about the type of organization studied. (Author)
