Overall, the preceding analysis suggests that the introduction of the PBRF is likely to result in a small shift of research funding from the arts, humanities and social sciences to higher-funded subject areas (especially those with high quality scores and high ERI). But what of the impact of the PBRF on individual subject areas? This is even more difficult to calculate, and of course much will depend on how individual TEOs choose to allocate their share of PBRF funding Algebraic number theory (Addison-Wesley series in mathematics).

Finally, the entry will review some of the issues pertaining to the quantitative versus qualitative debate about methods. Methodology refers to the behavior of scientists and scholars when examining phenomena relevant to their specific disciplines. The American Heritage Dictionary offers the following formal definition for methodology: "the theoretical analysis of the methods appropriate to a field of study or to the body of methods and principles particular to a branch of knowledge" (Pickett 2000, p. 2074) Action Research: Living Theory.

If we had no questions we would not have progressed in Science and Social Science. Research is the basis of all knowledge we have today. However, the knowledge with us can be seen to exist in a hierarchy of its sources from opinion and expert opinion to magazines and scientific journals (Barber A. & Korbanka, J., pp.3-4) Health Action Zones: Partnerships for Health Equity.

The key findings can be summarised as follows. In terms of ethnicity, almost three-quarters of PBRF-eligible staff in mid-2003 were Pakeha/European, about 6% Māori, just over 1% Pacific and almost 3% Chinese. The pattern for PBRF-eligible staff in the social sciences was broadly comparable with that of all PBRF-eligible staff, although the proportions of Pakeha/European, Maori and Chinese were slightly lower than the overall average while the proportions of Pacific and people of other ethnic backgrounds was slightly higher.6 The proportion of Pakeha/European staff in the social sciences receiving an “A” or “B” Quality Category (35.56%) was higher than for any other ethnic group, at least where there was more than one person in the ethnic group in question Evaluation Studies Review Annual: Volume 6 (Evaluation Studies Review Yearbook).
