CInSt research seminar "Funding acknowledgments in the Web of Science and Scopus databases as an object of science studies: the case of Russia"

Highlights of CInSt research seminar by Ivan Sterligov

Scopus is more popular among Russian scholars than Web of Science according to the Google trends. Russian Foundation for Basic Research (RFBR) is a leader in funding research in physics, chemistry, biology, and Earth sciences in Russia followed by Russian Science Fund (RSF). RFBR support is the most prominent but RSF support is increasing quickly.

Almost 21% of publications are supported by RFBR and RSF. 43% of papers are produced by universities from the first wave of the Project 5-100.

Megagrant program grants support mostly internationally coauthored papers rather than RSFB and RSF. There are lots of mentions of foreign grant funders: DFG (Germany) is a leader but NNSF (China) is gradually increasing.
