China’s scientific achievement has received considerable international attention due to a large amount of research and development (R&D) spending. This article aims to study the performance of China’s R&D expenditures (in the form of research funding) by examining the research performance of individual researchers based on bibliometric measures. This study concludes that research practice is not merely determined by capital possessed. Besides, international collaboration primarily accounts for research performance of scholars, whereas research funding and publishing in Chinese-based journals do not impact research performance significantly.
