Anatomy of use-inspired researchers: From Pasteur’s Quadrant to Pasteur’s Cube model

Research Policy, 2018, vol. 47, issue 9, 1626-1638

Abstract: Pasteur’s Quadrant model, published by Stokes in 1997, presents a two-dimensional abstract conceptual framework that proved immensely helpful to study and discuss institutional and policy arrangements in science. However, during the last 10 years the PQ model was also applied in a series of large-scale, survey-based studies worldwide to classify individual modern-day researchers according to their research orientation and performance.
