R&D Spending in Humanities

Aurora Brief Reviews No. 04 February 19 2019

February 2019

According to “Humanities Indicators”, a project of the American Academy of Arts & Sciences, research spending in the Humanities grew by almost 10% in 2017, reaching nearly 500 million $, the highest since 2007 when these data were recorded for the first time.

This may be a small consolation for researchers in the Humanities considering that research spending on the Humanities is minute compared to research spending on Health, Engineering and Bio/medical sciences, other domains that less well-endowed like math, physics, and social sciences.
