SCIENTIFIC CITATIONS IN FUNDED AND UNFUNDED RESEARCH BETWEEN BASIC AND
APPLIED SCIENCES: EMPIRICAL ANALYSIS OF THE VARIABILITY WITH RESEARCH
This study analyzes the relation between funded and unfunded papers, and
citations in different scientific fields. Findings here reveal general
properties of scientific development in research fields related to basic
and applied sciences: a) Funded articles in journals receive higher
citations than unfunded papers in journals, b) Funded articles in
journals have a super-linear variation of citations higher than unfunded
articles in journals: a higher accumulation of citations and diffusion
of knowledge of funded articles in journals than unfunded papers.
Results here can provide information for extend the knowledge to design
research policies directed to support funding for the scientific
development in research fields to advance science in human society.
