The Worldviews and Opinions of Scientists in India Summary Report gives the highlights of an international, academic web survey conducted by the nonpartisan Institute for the Study of Secularism in Society and Culture (ISSSC) of Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut. The survey was conducted between August 2007 and January 2008 in cooperation with the Center for Inquiry India. The large national sample of Indian scientists, the first of its kind, included 1,100 participants from 130 universities and research institutes.

The intent is to conduct a series of surveys in various countries with differing cultures, in order to learn who today’s scientists are and what they think about contemporary moral and ethical issues.
