No 2013-24, SIRE Discussion Papers from Scottish Institute for Research in Economics (SIRE)
New methods of analysis of patent statistics allow assessing country profiles of technological specialization for the period 1990-2006. We witness a modest decrease in levels of specialization, which we show to be negatively influenced by country size and degree of internationalization of inventive activities.
