  The authors propose a novel index, the Academic Productivity Index, as an additional metric to compare the academic performance of faculty members. The proposed index relates academic products in terms of articles produced to the amount of grant funding awarded to a faculty member by using a ratio of publications to grant funding. research productivity and impact. This is followed by an overview of newer methods to measure research productivity and impact and a discussion of new trends in reporting of productivity and impact. When a peer-reviewed journal article is indexed by a bibliographic database such as MEDLINE/PubMed, a record for the work is created to allow users.

Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) is pleased to announce an open competition for the creation of an International Public Policy Observatory to support public policy decision-makers in developing effective strategies for responding to and recovering from the social, economic and public health impacts of the Covid pandemic. Previous reports from National Institutes of Health and National Science Foundation have suggested that peer review scores of funded grants bear no association with grant citation impact and.

Because a lower priority score has little impact on the probability of grant receipt below the cutoff, if research funding does indeed increase output, we should see a weaker relationship between normalized priority score and output below the cutoff relative to above the by: The limited research impact of NIH grants may be explained in part by a model in which the market for research funding is competitive, so that the loss of an NIH grant simply causes researchers to shift to another source of funding.

The Impact of Research Grant Funding on Scientific Productivity. In this paper, we estimate the impact of receiving an NIH grant on subsequent publications and citations.

Our sample consists of all applications (unsuccessful as well as successful) to the NIH from to for standard research grants Cited by:   We estimate the impact of NIH grant receipt on research output.

Receiving an award modestly increases applicant research productivity. We find little evidence that an award displaces other NIH funding. Researchers may have access to other funding sources for high quality by: While research grant financing is a key foundation of scientific productivity, its overall effectiveness is a subject of debate.

By investigating 20 years of NIH grants, Jacob and Lefgren have. The estimates represent about 20 and 7 percent increases in research productivity for F32 and R01 recipients respectively. The limited research impact of NIH grants may be explained in part by a model in which the market for research funding is competitive, so that the loss of an NIH grant simply causes researchers to shift to another source of funding.

impact of research grants on subsequent (research) productivity and knowledge transfers. We examine whether STW research grants submitted in the period between and improve research output of individual researchers in terms of academic productivity and utilisation.

Government funding for scientific research may influence the size of the research sector as well as the productivity of researchers within the sector.

A comprehensive cost- benefit analysis would examine the R&D consequences of government funding on both of these margins. In this analysis, however, our focus is somewhat narrower.

The Impact of Research Grants on the Productivity and Quality of Scientific Research 1. Introduction The evaluation of university research continues to be a subject of much interest among policy-makers, partly because universities produce much valuable knowledge, but also.

These findings suggest that research investments as small as seed funding are effective for scientific productivity and professional growth of novice investigators and production of research with new initiatives and innovations. Further efforts are recommended to enhance the support of small grant funding programs.

Both OLS and IV estimates show that receipt of an NIH research grant (worth roughly $million) leads to only one additional publication over the next five years, which corresponds to a 7% increase. The estimates represent about 20 and 7 percent increases in research productivity for F32 and R01 recipients respectively.

One approach, exemplified by a recent study by Jacob and Lefgren, looks at the impact of receiving a grant on the productivity of an individual researcher. Utilizing administrative data from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) on all training and standard grant proposals submitted between andJacob and Lefgren estimate the effects of being awarded a grant versus not receiving the.

All research articles should have a funding acknowledgement statement included in the manuscript in the form of a sentence under a separate heading entitled ‘Funding’ directly after your Acknowledgements and Declaration of Conflicting Interests, if applicable, and prior to any Notes and your References.

The funding agency should be written out in full, followed by the grant. How much research funding improves research productivity is a question that has relevance for all funding agencies and governments around the world. Previous studies have used observational data that compares productivity between winners of different amounts of funding, but researchers who win lots of funding are usually very different from.

To support multi-year funded research with unique, high impact ideas for addressing biomedical research including assuring a balanced and effective workforce. This research grant program will encourage exceptionally creative scientists to develop potentially transforming approaches for supported research.

Surprisingly, given the impact that decisions on research funding have on academic careers, relatively little research has been done into the peer review of grant applications.7 Thirty two proposals for funding from the McGill University Health Center Research Institute were assessed by two competing processes: a traditional review committee of.Industry funding of academic research in the United States is one of the two major sources of funding in academia along with government support.
