The relative impact of private research on scientific advancement

  title={The relative impact of private research on scientific advancement},
  author={Giovanni Abramo and Ciriaco Andrea D'Angelo and Flavia Di Costa},
  journal={arXiv: General Economics},
Literature about the scholarly impact of scientific research offers very few contributions on private sector research, and the comparison with public sector. In this work, we try to fill this gap examining the citation-based impact of Italian 2010-2017 publications distinguishing authorship by the private sector from the public sector. In particular, we investigate the relation between different forms of collaboration and impact: how intra-sector private publications compare to public, and how… Expand

Public–private research collaborations: Longitudinal field‐level analysis of determinants, frequency, and impact
This study on public-private research collaboration measures the variation over time of the propensity of academics to collaborate with colleagues from private companies. It also investigates theExpand
Do the propensity and drivers of academics' engagement in research collaboration with industry vary over time?
An inferential model is applied on a dataset of professors working in Italian universities in two subsequent periods, 2010-2013 and 2014-2017 to measure how the propensity of academics to collaborate with their colleagues from private firms varies over time and whether the typical profile of such academics change.

Drivers of academic engagement in public–private research collaboration: an empirical study
University-industry research collaboration is one of the major research policy priorities of advanced economies. In this study, we try to identify the main drivers that could influence the propensityExpand


Public-private collaboration and scientific impact: An analysis based on Danish publication data for 1995-2013
This paper examines the citation impact of papers involving public-private collaboration in comparison with academic research papers, and examines the role of a variety of factors, such as international collaboration, the number of co-authors, academic disciplines, and whether the research is mainly basic or applied.

The relationship between scientists’ research performance and the degree of internationalization of their research
Examining the international collaborations of Italian university researchers for the period 2001–2005 shows that both research productivity and average quality of output have positive effects on the degree of international collaboration achieved by a scientist. Expand
The effect of university–industry collaboration on the scientific impact of publications: the Canadian case, 1980–2005
Previous research on university-industry collaboration in Canada, using mean impact factors as a proxy, concluded that the scientific impact of such research is not inferior to that of universityExpand
University-industry collaboration in Italy: a bibliometric examination
The analyses demonstrate that university researchers who collaborate with those in the private sector show research performance that is superior to that of colleagues who are not involved in such collaboration, but the impact factor of journals publishing academic articles co-authored by industry is generally lower than that concerning co-authorships with other entities.

The role of information asymmetry in the market for university–industry research collaboration
Using spatial and bibliometric analysis relating to scientific output of university researchers, the study shows the importance of geographic proximity in companies’ choices of university partner and reveals inefficiency in the market. Expand

Inflationary bibliometric values: The role of scientific collaboration and the need for relative indicators in evaluative studies
The main objective of this paper is to analyse if the number or weight of actors in scientific communication has increased, if patterns of documented scientific communication and collaboration have changed in the last two decades and if these tendencies have inflationary features. Expand
When Collaboration Bridges Institutions: The Impact of University-Industry Collaboration on Academic Productivity
This work exploits the occurrence of simultaneous discoveries where multiple scientists make roughly the same discovery around the same time to compare the follow-on research output of academic scientists who collaborated with industry on the discovery with that of academics who did not. Expand
On the relation between the degree of internationalization of cited and citing publications: A field level analysis, including and excluding self-citations
The probability of being cited increases with the degree of internationalization of the research team, and publications resulting from international collaborations tend to be more cited by totally foreign publications rather than by publications including domestic authors. Expand
