  • Management of science, serendipity, and research performance: Evidence from a survey of scientists in Japan and the U.S.

    Kota Murayama, Makoto Nirei, Hiroshi Shimizu

    Research Policy   44 ( 4 ) 862 - 873  2015  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    In science, research teams are increasing in size, which suggests that science is becoming more organisational. This paper aims to empirically investigate the effects of the division of labour in management and science on serendipity, which has been considered one of the great factors in science. Specifically, in examining the survey of scientists conducted in Japan and the U.S., this paper treats the following questions: Does pursuing serendipity really bring about better scientific outcomes? How does the division of labour in science influence serendipity and publication productivity? The empirical results suggest that serendipity actually brings about better research quality on average. It also finds that if the managerial role is played by a leading scientist in the team, this is positively associated with the quality of the paper through allowing researchers to pursue serendipitous findings. In contrast, if the managerial role and leading research role are played by different members, this has a positive association with the number of papers published, as the project size becomes larger. These results indicate there is a trade-off between serendipity and publication productivity in science via who plays the leading role in research and management. (C) 2015 Elsevier B.V.

  • Reassessing patent propensity: Evidence from a dataset of R&D awards, 1977-2004

    Roberto Fontana, Alessandro Nuvolari, Hiroshi Shimizu, Andrea Vezzulli

    RESEARCH POLICY   42 ( 10 ) 1780 - 1792  2013.12  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    It is well known that not all innovations are patented, but the exact volume of innovative activities undertaken outside the coverage of patent protection and, relatedly, the actual propensity to patent an innovation in different contexts remain, to a major degree, a matter of speculation. This paper presents an exploratory study comparing systematically patented and unpatented innovations over the period 1977-2004 across industrial sectors. The main data source is the 'R&D 100 Awards' competition organized by the journal Research and Development. Since 1963, the magazine has been awarding this prize to the 100 most technologically significant new products available for sale or licensing in the year preceding the judgments. We match the products winners of the R&D 100 awards competition with USPTO patents and we examine the variation of patent propensity across different contexts (industries, geographical areas and organizations). Finally we compare our findings with previous assessments of patent propensity based on several sources of data. (C) 2013 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.

  • Schumpeterian patterns of innovation and the sources of breakthrough inventions: evidence from a data-set of R&D awards

    Roberto Fontana, Alessandro Nuvolari, Hiroshi Shimizu, Andrea Vezzulli

    JOURNAL OF EVOLUTIONARY ECONOMICS   22 ( 4 ) 785 - 810  2012.09  [Refereed]

     View Summary

    This paper examines the relationship between Schumpeterian patterns of innovation and the generation of breakthrough inventions. Our data source for breakthrough inventions is the "R&D 100 awards" competition organized each year by the magazine Research & Development. Since 1963, this magazine has been awarding this prize to 100 most technologically significant new products available for sale or licensing in the year preceding the judgment. We use USPTO patent data to measure the relevant dimensions of the technological regime prevailing in each sector and, on this basis, we provide a characterization of each sector in terms of the Schumpeter Mark I/Schumpeter Mark II archetypes. Our main finding is that breakthrough inventions are more likely to emerge in 'turbulent' Schumpeter Mark I type of contexts.
