Patents, Citations and Innovations by Adam B. Jaffe

Book Description

Innovation and technological change, long recognized as the main drivers of long-term economic growth, are elusive notions that are difficult to conceptualize and even harder to measure in a consistent, systematic way. This book demonstrates the usefulness of patents and citations data as a window on the process of technological change and as a powerful tool for research on the economics of innovation. Patent records contain a wealth of information, including the inventors' identity, location, and employer, as well as the technological field of the invention. Patents also contain citation references to previous patents, which allow one to trace links across inventions. The book lays out the conceptual foundations for such research and provides a range of interesting applications, such as examining the geographic pattern of knowledge spillovers and evaluating the impact of university and government patenting. It also describes statistical tools designed to handle methodological problems raised by the patent and citation processes. The book is accompanied by a set of auxiliary materials, including complete data on 3 million patents with more than 16 million citations and a range of author-devised measures of the importance, generality, and originality of patented innovations.

Innovation Policy and the Economy by Adam B. Jaffe Innovation Policy and the Economy, Hardback (April 2008)

Offers a forum for research on the interactions among public policy, the innovation process, and the economy. This volume covers issues such as policy challenges at the university-industry interface, and the role of innovation and experimentation in the net neutrality debate.

Innovation and its Discontents by Adam B. Jaffe Innovation and its Discontents, Paperback (December 2006)

The United States patent system has become sand rather than lubricant in the wheels of American progress.
