The scholarly impact of private sector research: A multivariate analysis

Giovanni Abramo, Ciriaco Andrea D'Angelo and Flavia Di Costa

Journal of Informetrics, 2021, vol. 15, issue 3

Abstract: 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 private-public joint publications compare to intra-sector extramural collaborations. Finally, we assess the different effect of international collaboration on private and public research impact, and whether there occur differences across research fields.
