English Abstract:
Research funding has usually been described only at a very aggregate level.
Analytics tools developed over the last 25 years for research policy use have
rarely ‘followed the money’ but have instead been based on just one aspect
of the research cycle and one type of data: research output in the form of
journal articles and their citations. These data were a preferred source because
of indexed, accessible, global data sources such as Clarivate Analytics Web
of Science and Elsevier’s Scopus. Publication analysis provided valuable but
necessarily limited perspectives. Now, however, more comprehensive and
diverse data, which give a fuller picture, are becoming available. They can provide
not only new perspectives but complementary information about the other
parts of the research environment and process.
The Dimensions database of competitive research grants is used in this report
to explore trends in recent funding. Dimensions indexes more than $1 trillion
across more than 1.5 million individual grants and awards, linked to principal
investigators and to their institutions. Projects from many different national
systems are assigned to a consistent set of categories, using the Australia-New
Zealand system of Fields of Research (ANZSRC, 2008). Dimensions includes the
grant abstract or summary text descriptor (translated to English) in most cases,
so a free text search is supported. Grant values are normalised by conversion
to US dollars.
In common with other research of policy interest, climate change is not a simple
category. It covers a wide range of disciplines and is, as such, an excellent venue to
explore new data sources. The funding of climate change research is of particular
interest because it relates to policy with massive economic impact. For example
