October 2014The Effects of Research & Development Funding On Scientific Productivity: Academic Chemistry, 1990-2009
with Joshua L. Rosenbloom, Donna K. Ginther, Joseph Heppert: w20595
This article examines the relationship between Research & Development (R&D) funding and the production of knowledge by academic chemists. Using articles published, either raw counts or adjusted for quality, we find a strong, positive causal effect of funding on knowledge production. This effect is similar across subsets of universities, suggesting a relatively efficient allocation of R&D funds. Finally, we document a rapid acceleration in the rate at which chemical knowledge was produced in the late 1990s and early 2000s relative to the financial and human resources devoted to its production.
