Analysis of publications arising from research funded by EPSRC
Supplementary content information
A study of articles linked to EPSRC funding has affirmed the high quality and productivity of researchers supported by the organisation.
Some of the key findings included:
- more than 53,000 peer-reviewed research articles were published during 2010-2015
- the articles have more than double the impact (2.06) of the world average (1.0) in their research areas; those linked to EPSRC's 'longer, larger' grants (those taking place for more than 42 months and receiving more than £700,000 of support) have even higher relative impact (2.35)
- 'engineering' publications perform four times higher than the world average in top citation percentiles
- 44% of the articles were produced through international collaboration.
Principal Investigators linked the articles to EPSRC funding using the researchfish® outcomes collection system.
The study was undertaken by Elsevier on behalf of EPSRC.
