ABSTRACT
The article presents a reprint of the article on barriers faced by Chinese researchers that hinder them to develop innovations. It says that the amount of research funding received does not match the quality of scientific output due to influences on its allocation by connections and administrative status. It states that researchers are evaluated and rewarded based on local standards and surrogate measures. It adds that the limited English language skills of researchers are part of the barriers.
