Abstract

The outputs from the fundamental research program of the Korea Institute of Geoscience and Mineral Resources(KIGAM) were analyzed using the research budget and manpower as input variables. The analysis was performed based on the research outputs of the past 3 years (FY2004 to 2006). More articles and patents came out in applied and development research areas among the geosciences fields. The statistical analysis indicates that each sub-field has different characteristics in research outputs. Research articles, patents, and research budget increase as the manpower increase. But research articles and patents do not always show positive relations to research budget.

Keywords Fundamental research program, research output, KIGAM, research article, patent
