Abstract

Scherngell T. and Hu Y. Collaborative knowledge production in China: regional evidence from a gravity model approach, Regional Studies. This study investigates collaborative knowledge production in China from a regional perspective. The objective is to illustrate spatial patterns of research collaborations between thirty-one Chinese regions, and to estimate the impact of geographical, technological, and economic factors on the variation of cross-region collaboration activities within a negative binomial gravity model framework. Data are used on Chinese scientific publications from 2007 with multiple author addresses coming from the China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) database. The results provide evidence that geographical space impedes cross-region research collaborations in China. Technological proximity matters more than geography, while economic effects only play a minor role. [image omitted] Scherngell T. et Hu Y. La production en collaboration de la connaissance en Chine; des preuves regionales provenant d'un modele de gravite, Regional Studies. Cette etude examine la production en collaboration de la connaissance en Chine d'un point de vue regional. On cherche a illustrer les tendances geographiques de la recherche en collaboration pour trente et une regions chinoises et a estimer l'impact des facteurs a la fois geographiques, technologiques et economiques sur la variation des activites de collaboration interregionales au sein d'un modele de gravite du type binomial negatif. On emploie des donnees sur les publications scientifiques chinoises de 2007 dont les adresses a auteur multiples proviennent de la base de donnees China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI). Les resultats laissent voir que l'espace geographique fait obstacle a la recherche interregionale en collaboration en Chine. La proximite de la technologie l'emporte sur la geographie, tandis que les retombees economiques ne jouent qu'un role secondaire.

Kollaborative Wissensproduktion in China: eine empirische Analyse mit raumlichen Interaktionsmodellen, Regional Studies. Die vorliegende Studie untersucht kollaborative Wissensproduktion in China aus einer regionalen Perspektive. Zielsetzung ist es, raumliche Muster kollaborativer Wissensproduktion zwischen 31 chinesischen Regionen zu beschreiben und den Einfluss von geographischen, technologischen und okonomischen Determinanten auf die Variation interregionaler Kollaborationsaktiviaten zu messen. Die Studie verwendet neue Daten aus der China National Knowledge Infrastructure (CNKI) Datenbank uber chinesische Ko-Publikationen mit mindestens zwei Autoren aus dem Jahr 2007. Die Ergebnisse zeigen, dass die Kollaborationswahrscheinlichkeit signifikant mit zunehmender geographischer Distanz abnimmt. Der Einfluss von technologischer Nahe ist jedoch wichtiger als geographische Distanzeffekte, wahrend okonomische Unterschiede eine geringere Rolle spielen.

La produccion de conocimiento colaborador en China: ejemplo regional de un modelo de gravedad, Regional Studies. En este estudio investigamos la produccion de conocimiento colaborador en China desde una perspectiva regional. Nuestro objetivo es ilustrar los patrones espaciales de las colaboraciones de investigacion entre treinta y una regiones de China y calcular el impacto de determinantes geograficos, tecnologicos y economicos sobre la variacion de las actividades de colaboracion interregional segun una estructura de modelo de gravedad binomial negativa. Los datos utilizados proceden de publicaciones cientificas chinas de varios autores de 2007 que proceden de la base de datos de la Infraestructura de Conocimiento Nacional de China (CNKI). Los resultados demuestran que el espacio geografico obstaculiza las colaboraciones de investigacion interregionales en China. La proximidad tecnologica importa mas que la geografia mientras que los efectos economicos desempenan solamente un papel menor.
