Identifying the intellectual scientific basis of the Economics and Management of Innovation Management area
AbstractLast decades observed a considerable increase of literature devoted to innovation-related studies. This area is characterized by fruitful interdisciplinary and there is not a single discipline that embraces all aspects of innovation. From the analysis of nearly 60.000 references, included in the 1442 articles published in the area’ seed journal, we concluded that the Economics and Management of Innovation discipline presents a lower degree of autonomy as its dependency upon broader and core scientific areas such as Economics is rather high - about a third of the references were made to articles published in top (mainstream) journals of Economics. Nevertheless, the apparent large dependency on the mainstream, the most influential authors are associated with heterodox approaches, namely the evolutionary approach (e.g., Richard R. Nelson) and the European approach to innovation (e.g., Keith Pavitt and Chris Freeman).
