Aims and Scope

Gradually you will realise that no Indian journal is far superior to The Scientific Temper, irrespective of their indexing and abstracting tags.-  Prof P N Tripathi, PhD, FIASc, Editor-in-Chief

धीरे-धीरे आपको एहसास होगा कि कोई भी भारतीय पत्रिका द साइंटिफिक टेम्पर से कहीं बेहतर नहीं है, भले ही उनके इंडेक्सिंग और एब्सट्रैक्टिंग टैग  कुछ भी हों। - प्रोफेसर पी एन त्रिपाठी, पीएचडी, एफआईएएससी, प्रधान संपादक

Our nation is steering forward under the leadership of our present government. Our shared responsibility towards education, learning and communication of knowledge has been assigned by our visionary leaders. Promoting scientific temper is a fundamental duty embedded in our constitution. CONSTITUTION OF INDIA: FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES, ARTICLE 51-A (h) states," It shall be the duty of every citizen of India to develop the scientific temper, humanism and spirit of inquiry and reform".

हमारा देश हमारी वर्तमान सरकार के नेतृत्व में तेजी से आगे बढ़ रहा है। शिक्षा, सीखने और ज्ञान के संचार के प्रति हमारी साझा जिम्मेदारी हमारे दूरदर्शी नेताओं द्वारा सौंपी गई है। वैज्ञानिक सोच को बढ़ावा देना हमारे संविधान में अंतर्निहित एक मौलिक कर्तव्य है। भारत का संविधान: मौलिक कर्तव्य, अनुच्छेद 51-ए (एच) में कहा गया है, "भारत के प्रत्येक नागरिक का यह कर्तव्य होगा कि वह वैज्ञानिक स्वभाव, मानवतावाद और जांच और सुधार की भावना विकसित करे"।

*What is Scientific Temper? Scientific temper describes an attitude which involves the application of logic and the avoidance of bias and preconceived notions. Discussion, argument and analysis are vital parts of scientific temper. It is thus necessarily open — admitting every point of view, however heterodox it might be, or where it comes from. Elements of fairness, equality and democracy are built into it. ("Scientific temper and the argumentative Indian". The Hindu. Retrieved on 2007-09-25.)

* वैज्ञानिक स्वभाव क्या है? वैज्ञानिक स्वभाव एक दृष्टिकोण का वर्णन करता है जिसमें तर्क का अनुप्रयोग और पूर्वाग्रह और पूर्वनिर्धारित धारणाओं से बचना शामिल है। चर्चा, तर्क और विश्लेषण वैज्ञानिक स्वभाव के महत्वपूर्ण अंग हैं। इस प्रकार यह आवश्यक रूप से खुला है - हर दृष्टिकोण को स्वीकार करना, चाहे वह कितना भी हेटरोडॉक्स हो, या यह कहां से आता है। निष्पक्षता, समानता और लोकतंत्र के घटक इसमें निर्मित हैं। ("वैज्ञानिक स्वभाव और तर्कशील भारतीय"। द हिंदू। अभिगमन तिथि 2007-09-25.)

*¿Qué es el temperamento científico? El temperamento científico describe una actitud que implica la aplicación de la lógica y la evitación de prejuicios y nociones preconcebidas. La discusión, la argumentación y el análisis son partes vitales del temperamento científico. Por lo tanto, es necesariamente abierto y admite todos los puntos de vista, por muy heterodoxo que sea o por muy heterodoxo que sea o de dónde venga. En él se incorporan elementos de justicia, igualdad y democracia. ("El temperamento científico y el indio argumentativo". The Hindu. Consultado el 25 de septiembre de 2007.)

*Что такое научный темперамент? Научный характер описывает отношение, которое предполагает применение логики и избегание предвзятости и предвзятых представлений. Обсуждение, аргументация и анализ являются жизненно важными частями научного характера. Таким образом, оно обязательно открыто — допуская любую точку зрения, какой бы неортодоксальной она ни была и откуда она исходит. В него заложены элементы справедливости, равенства и демократии.
