Mapping research on R&D, innovation and productivity: a study of an academic endeavour

Anders Broström and Staffan Karlsson

Economics of Innovation and New Technology, 2017, vol. 26, issue 1-2, 6-20

Abstract: This paper accounts for the development of the academic endeavour to determine the firm-level relationship between investments in R&D and productivity. The impact of 28 highly cited publications within this line of study is investigated using a combination of bibliometric techniques and citation function analysis. We show how the attention paid to this line of research broadens and deepens in parallel to the diffusion of innovation as a research theme during 2000s. Our findings also suggest that the attraction of scholarly attention is driven by combination of broadening interest in the central research question under study and boundary-pushing methodological contributions made in the key contributions.
