What is ResearchWatch?

ResearchWatch lets you explore the National Science Foundation grants database using a faceted search pattern.

Who created ResearchWatch?

ResearchWatch is the work of Tommy Chheng and his advisor Professor Bill Tomlinson. Both are affiliated with the Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences and Calit2 at UC Irvine.

We thank the Amazon Web Services for providing EC2 hosting. We also thank the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation for providing funds to use the NSF grants dataset.

New Features

Below is a current list of features suggested by users. We will do our best to implement features.

  • I’d love to get a list of all NSF PIs at University XX, sorted by the dollar amount of grants.
  • Could the graph at the top have the option for the vertical axis to be either number of grants or total $ amount?
  • For those searches with lots of entries, the Show More button should somehow be able to show all non-zero topics (not sure how best to do this). For example, show all involved PIs from a search.
  • Google lets me use just an opening ” mark and assumes that it’s closed at the end. Can researchwatch do that too?
