Funding Australia's basic biomedical research of 1993 and 1994

The meshing of two databases of scientific publications -- the Wellcome Trust's Research Outputs Database, and the Research Evaluation and Policy Project's database of Australian publications -- allows a detailed analysis of the funding agencies providing external (as opposed to intramural) support for Australia's basic biomedical research. This analysis shows the success Australian researchers are having in attracting funding from overseas, and the high citation rates achieved by publications with external funding.
