PREPARATION OF ENCYCLOPAEDIAS

 

Scope:

 

It is a known fact that an encyclopaedia provides comprehensive information on many aspects of one subject or on many subjects. While a glossary or a definitional dictionary gives a short definition or explanation of a term, an encyclopaedia gives a more information on the concerned term. Encyclopaedias are needed for the learners of technical subjects.  There are no encyclopaedias in Hindi on subjects relating to Science and Technology. For students and teachers using Hindi as a medium of instructions, encyclopaedias will be of immense help. The Commission has taken up the task of preparing encyclopaedias in Hindi on subject relating to science and technology.

 

 

Procedure for preparing encyclopaedias:

 

    The procedure of preparation of encyclopaedia is similar to the preparation of definitional dictionary.
 

Rules and Regulations:

     
    All the rules and regulations of ‘evolution and publication of technical terms in Hindi’ and ‘evolution and publication of technical terms in regional languages’ are partially or fully applicable in this case.
