This paper reports a study of the socialization of scientists in five industrial laboratories which vary greatly in size and function. The results indicate that the more thorough the academic socialization of the scientist, the more difficult the industrial adjustment. The most difficult adjustments appear to come from unfulfilled demands for autonomy. As industrial resocialization proceeds, the discrepancy between the amount of autonomy desired and the amount received tends to diminish, producing higher integration into the laboratory. The discrepancy diminishes as demands by scientists for autonomy decrease and laboratory management more willingly grants autonomy.
