Abstract

This paper examines the role of interdisciplinary research for the development of knowledge pertaining to local issues. Using Colombian publications from 1991 until 2011 in the Web of Science, we investigate the relationship between the degree of interdisciplinarity and the local focus of the articles. We find that a higher degree of interdisciplinarity in a publication is associated with a greater emphasis on local issues. In particular, our results support the cialis generico view that research that combines cognitively disparate disciplines, what we refer to as Distal Interdisciplinarity, is associated with more local relevance of best price for generic levitra research. In contrast we find that research that involves a clear disciplinary focus with some, but limited engagement with neighbouring disciplines, generates less local knowledge. We conclude by arguing that public research initiatives that aim to cialis buy uk appropriate the socio-economic benefits from publicly funded research should not focus exclusively on research excellence, which tends to be treated in disciplinary terms and citation counts as reflected in national research assessment exercises. Implications for policy are offered with attention to policies for capturing the societal benefits of publicly funded research, and implicitly, research assessment exercises.

Patent Overlay Maps

Patent Overlay Mapping: Visualizing Technological Distance

Luciano Kay, Nils Newman, Jan Youtie, Alan L. Porter and Ismael Rafols

Abstract

This paper presents a new global patent map that represents all technological categories, and a method to locate patent data of individual organizations and technological fields on www.icird.org the global map. This overlay map technique can support competitive intelligence and policy decision-making. The global patent map is based on similarities in citing-to-cited relationships between categories of the International Patent Classification (IPC) of European Patent Office (EPO) patents from 2000 to 2006. This patent dataset, extracted from the PatStat database, includes 760,000 patent records in more than 400 IPC categories. The paper overlays nanotechnology-related patenting activities of two companies and two different nanotechnology subfields on the global patent map. The exercise shows the potential of patent overlay maps to viagra 25mg visualize technological areas and potentially support decision-making. Furthermore, this study shows that IPC categories that are similar to one another based on citing-to-cited patterns (and thus are close in the global patent map) are not necessarily in the same hierarchical IPC branch, thus revealing new relationships between technologies that are classified as pertaining to different (and sometimes distant) subject areas in the IPC scheme.
