The Discovery Projects scheme provides project funding of between $30,000 and $500,000 per year for up to five consecutive years. This may include a Discovery International Award to support Australian-based researchers working overseas or overseas researchers working in Australia on a project. Project funding may also be used for: personnel, for example, research associates or assistants and technicians and stipends for higher degree by research students; teaching relief; access to research and infrastructure facilities and technical workshop services; essential field research; expert third party services; equipment and consumables; publication and dissemination of outputs and outreach; specialised computer equipment and software; travel costs essential to the project; web hosting and development; workshops, focus groups and conferences; and essential support costs for researchers who are carers or who themselves require care.
How many children are antisocial? How many are getting help early? To study the national incidence of antisocial behavior among children, researchers focus on two psychiatric diagnoses: oppositional defiant disorder and conduct disorder. Oppositional defiant disorder, the less serious of the two, consists of an ongoing pattern of uncooperative, angry behavior including things like deliberately trying to bother others and refusing to accept responsibility for mistakes. Conduct disorder is characterized by severe verbal and physical aggression, property destruction, and deceitful behavior that persist over time (usually one or more years). Formal surveys have generally indicated that between two and six percent of the general population of . children and youth has some form of conduct disorder (Kazdin, 1993).
