Abstract : Modern methods of management are essential for raising the effectiveness of scientific activity. Such management should be an organic part of a total system with clear lines of authority and a reliable flow of data between levels. Rational decision making depends on analysis, diagnosis and prognosis and aims at coordination of goal selection, work program determination and resource allocation. Models of science as a managed system may focus on informational, organizational and economic variables. Cybernetics and quantitative measures of performance are important tools for science management.
