Follow-up Study of the Finances of Chemistry and Physics Departments in UK Universities

This is a follow-up study to individual studies undertaken between 2004 and 2006 of the finances of a sample of chemistry departments in UK universities for the Royal Society of Chemistry and of the finances of a sample of physics departments in English universities for the Institute of Physics.
