四川大学教授致信《科学》评价施饶社论

Hopes for Merit-Based Grants in China
In their Editorial “China's research culture” (3 September 2010, p. 1128), Y. Shi and Y. Rao commented on the plight of research in China. The situation is even worse than that described in the Editorial. Hundreds of thousands of grassroots professors and researchers are struggling, lacking sufficient financial support for research. As an ordinary professor, I have never sensed that “[g]overnment research funds in China have been growing at an annual rate of more than 20%,” as claimed by the Editorial. The sad fact is that about 30% of full professors and 70% of associate professors in Sichuan University do not have funds for a single research project left in their charge (1). In addition, among those professors with projects, the distribution of funding is extremely biased in favor of officials.

I agree with the Editorial that “[a] simple but important start would be to distribute all of the new funds based on merit, without regard to connections.” Without such a change, seeking connections to win grants, either big or small, will by necessity continue to be rampant in China.

在《中国的科研文化》一文中,施饶对目前中国科研面临的困境发表了自己的见解,而实际情况比社论所述更为糟糕。几十万缺乏足够研究经费支持的基层教授和研究人员正在苦苦努力着。作为一名普通教授,我从未感到像这篇社论所说的那样,“中国政府投入的研究经费以每年超过20%的比例增加”。一个悲哀的事实是,四川大学约30%的正教授和70%的副教授得不到可由他们自己支配的经费来支撑一个研究项目。此外,在那些拥有项目的教授中,经费的分配非常偏向于官员的喜好。

我同意社论所说的“一个简单但重要的起点是基于学术优劣,而不是靠关系,来分配所有的新基金”。如若中国(对经费分配体制)不做改变,靠拉关系来获取大大小小的经费(这一现象)必将继续猖獗下去。(科学网 张笑/编译)
