With calls to increase federal funding in the physical sciences, in particular for sustainable energy technology SET , there is a need to better understand the relationship between funding and innovation. In this dissertation, I examine the relationship between federal funding and research productivity, as revealed through publications and citations, for a sample of academic researchers with SET interests. I consider three policy levers the federal government can use to increase researcher productivity: 1 increase individual funding to increase individual research productivity, 2 increase individual funding in a particular topic area to increase individual research productivity in that area, and 3 increase national-level funding in a topic area to increase researcher participation in that area.

But knowing that in your head and sitting down in front of your keyboard to begin the project are very different things. For a start, carrying out a study program is itself a very different thing from writing it all up at the end. The kinds of skills you need as a researcher -whether you have to conduct practical experiments in a scientific field or analyze statistics, make calculations or read a wide range of literature in order to amass the information you need - are different from the skills you need as a writer.
