An acute lacuna in availability of scientific and technical terms in mother tongue thus exists, which motivated the author Bimal Kanti Sen, the well-known lexicographer doing research in this area during last fifty years to compile English-Bengali subject dictionaries. Previously, he published two such subject dictionaries i.e. Samsad Rasayan Vijnaner Paribhasha (Chemical Terminology - English to Bengali). Kolkata: Sahitya Samsad, 2010; Granthagar o Tathyabijnaner Paribhashakosh Ingreji-Bangla (Glossary of library and information science terms English-Bengali). 2nd ed.
