Modelling the Research Output of Australian Universities by Discipline




Type Of Work


  • Scholarly edition

Abstract


  • This paper develops and estimates a cross-sectional model for forecasting research

    output across the Australian university system. It builds upon an existing literature that focuses

    either on institutional comparisons or studies of specific subjects, by providing discipline-specific

    results across all of the ten major disciplinary areas as defined by Australia’s Department of

    Education, Science and Training (DEST). The model draws upon four discipline-specific

    explanatory variables; staff size, research expenditure, PhD completions, and student-staff ratios

    to predict output of refereed articles. When compared with actual averaged output for 2000-2004,

    the results are highly statistically significant.
