Integrating data from three independent data sources––USPTO patenting data, Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s Academic Ranking of World Universities (ARWU) and the Times Higher Education Supplement’s World University Ranking (WUR), we examine the possible link between patenting output and the quantity and quality of scientific publications among 281 leading universities world-wide. We found that patenting by these universities, as measured by patents granted by the USPTO, has grown consistently… Expand

Do co-publications with industry lead to higher levels of university technology commercialization activity?
TLDR
It is suggested that UICPs do have a significant positive influence on universities' technology commercialization outputs, after controlling for the quantity and quality of their research and for their commercialization resources. Expand

Assessments of technology transfer activities of US universities and associated impact of Bayh–Dole Act
TLDR
It is found that patenting and licensing activities in US universities slowed down greatly after 2000 and remained flat until the period from 2010 to 2012, when activities recover to the level of strength characterizing the period before 2000 and after the enactment of the Bayh–Dole Act. Expand

In which regions do universities patent and publish more?
TLDR
Test whether university patents share common determinants with university publications at regional level suggests that there is little scope for regional policy to compensate the production of patents vs. publications through different university or joint research institutional settings. Expand

Universities and intellectual property rights in Southern European countries
TLDR
It is argued that PROs should be progressively able to adopt a “balanced” approach, in order to achieve co-existence between the traditional mechanisms of the so-called “open research system” and the more recent concerns about intellectual property protection, technology transfer and regional development.
