Abstract

Demand for the services of scientific consultants will undoubtedly increase in the coming decades, and compensation for technical expertise should likewise increase. It behooves us, therefore, to pay some attention early in this book to three fundamental questions about the continued supply of such professionals:
  1. 1.

    Why do scientists become consultants?

     
  2. 2.

    When do scientists become consultants?

     
  3. 3.

    What are the uncertainties that prospective scientific consultants face?
