Title: The contribution of public funding to science: an investigation of research quality
Author: Shapira, Philip ; Wang, Jue
Abstract: This study attempts to investigate the impact of research funding on the quality of scientific publications using the funding acknowledgement analysis approach. A two-stage regression model is used to test the effect of funding on research quality. The results show that publications from funded research do exhibit higher quality in terms of both journal ranking and citation counts. In the meantime, different funding sources and patterns are of different implications to research quality.
