This study analyzed the contene of articles in two prominent criminology and criminal justice journals during the time period of 1984-1997. The content analysis yielded 801 articles from Criminology and Justice Quarterly. The examination intended to determine the effect of funding on the article's content and structure. There were significant differences found between articles that utilized funding and those that did not. Those effects were that funded articles tended to utilize a quantitative methodology and secondary data. Further, the study discusses the implications of funding, specifically governmental funding, in the realm of academia. Implications of this trend in knowledge construction are discussed.
