Inventor disambiguation is an increasingly important issue for users of patent data. We propose and test a number of refinements to the original Massacrator algorithm, originally proposed by Lissoni et al. (The keins database on academic inventors: methodology and contents, 2006) and now applied to APE-INV, a free access database funded by the European(More)
In this chapter we present a " history-friendly " model of the evolution of the pharmaceutical industry. This industry constitutes an ideal subject for history-friendly analysis, for several reasons and especially in comparison to our previous efforts concerning the computer industry. Pharmaceuticals are traditionally a highly R&D and marketing intensive(More)

We adopt an unbalanced panel of 3,871 innovative companies in Germany between 1992 and 2010, for a total of 15,819 observations, and we study their innovative(More)
We investigate the effect of both research and consulting on higher education teaching quality at the individual level. We propose a theoretical model in which academics allocate limited time between three activities, over a two period horizon, under the assumption of positive spillovers from research to both consulting opportunities and teaching, and of(More)
This paper examines the evolution of the pharmaceutical industry. After a brief discussion of the main stylised facts about the industry, we present a history-friendly model that aims at capturing the underlining mechanisms and the logic that guides the evolution of this industry. Simulation results show the mechanisms and dynamic processes linking the(More)
We examine gender differences among the six PhD student cohorts 2004-2009 at the California Institute of Technology using a new dataset that includes information on trainees and their advisors and enables us to construct detailed measures of teams at the advisor level. We focus on the relationship between graduate student publications and: (1) their gender;(More)
