The study was conducted among scientists of south zone animal science research institutes of Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) to analyze scientists’ perception of the potential of Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) enforcement in technology management. A scale comprising of forty-seven items, distributed under three sub-domains of technology management was developed to measure scientist’s perception. The subdomains included technology generation, protection, and transfer/commercialization. The content validated and reliability tested scale was administered among respondents who were requested to indicate their degree of agreement or disagreement towards the statements. Out of eighty-three scientists working in the institutes, seventy-two recorded their ratings. Findings revealed that more than three-fourth of scientists had high perception about potential of IPR enforcement in overall technology management. Among scientists, 80.56, 79.17 and 69.44 per cent belonged to high perception group under technology generation, transfer/commercialization, and protection domains, respectively, while technology generation domain displayed highest mean score (3.27).
