The subject of this report is a loosely defined population of nonprofit nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) that range from broad-spectrum general-purpose scientific and technical groups, such as the American Association for the Advancement of Science, to elite academies, such as the National Academy of Sciences and its affiliated National Research Council, from there to an extensive array of discipline-specific societies, such as the American Physical Society, through think tanks dedicated to government work, such as the RAND Corporation, and on to policy advocacy groups, such as the World Resources Institute.
