The development of performance indices for basic science research

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

As an increasing amount of government support is given for scientific research and development (R&D) within key subject areas, it becomes essential to evaluate the academic and economic value of such support. In this paper, we develop performance indices for various basic research programs developed for scientists and engineers who are at the following different stages within their research career: postdoctorate and research fellows, junior professors, and outstanding scholars. The proposed indices are expected to provide feedback information necessary for continual improvement for the operation of government R&D funding programs.
