Communication of scientific knowledge through research publications forms an integral part of any research program. At the same time, to reap the benefits of the scientific research, the scientific knowledge has to be communicated to the masses through different publications. To fulfil this requirement, NISCAIR endeavours to communicate scientific information to a wide section of Indian society through its various publications.
With an objective of catering to scientific research community, the institute brings out 17 primary and two secondary scientific journals of international repute. The institute also brings out three popular science magazines in Hindi, English and Urdu to meet the scientific quest of the masses. Encyclopaedic volumes of "The Wealth of India" and "Bharat Ki Sampada", which deal with the natural resources of the country, cater to the needs of enterpreneurs, progressive farmers, students, researchers, etc. NISCAIR also brings out CSIR News and CSIR Samachar.
