DAGNINO, Renato. Research community and science and technology policy in developed countries: a Latin American perspective. Rev. bras. Ci. Soc. [online]. 2006, vol.21, n.61, pp. 191-201. ISSN 0102-6909. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-69092006000200011.
The work approaches the perception of advanced countries researchers who analyze the transformation in course in the research and higher education institutions concerning the research community's role (vis-à-vis the bureaucrats and entrepreneurs) in their policy making process. Its objective, besides providing an updated panoramic vision on the theme for Latin-American colleagues, is to show that many of our community's characteristics seem to be equally present, sometimes in a lessened way, in those countries. The aim of the work is to contribute to a more adequate consideration of these characteristics in the elaboration of the Science and Technology policy of our countries.
