China`s Roadmap for Fostering S&T and Catalyzing Innovation: Lessons for India
Sandhya, G.D. ; Nath, Pradosh ;
Asian Journal of Innovation and Policy, volume 2, issue 2, 2013, Pages 123~149
DOI : 10.7545/ajip.2013.2.2.123
In the past three decades since the advent of market oriented reforms began in 1978, China has made rapid strides in catalyzing economic growth. The economic development coincides with the development of significant capabilities in several areas of science, technology, and innovation. China has recorded notable achievements in a number of emerging fields. This paper investigates the process that has catalyzed the developments in Science and Technology (S&T) and the key factors that have facilitated this process. The causality of dynamism of S&T in China points at targeted development, an emphasis on high growth industries and high technology, commensurate resource mobilization, ruthless restructuring of innovation actors, dynamic organization and management of R&D, continuously evolving policies with strict enforcement, and implementable instruments. This paper attempts to bring out the roadmap of the Chinese transformation process in S&T and derive policy lessons for India.
Research Trends and Its Determinants in Mobile Commerce Research (1999-2012)
Ko, Chang-Ryong ;
Asian Journal of Innovation and Policy, volume 2, issue 2, 2013, Pages 150~172
DOI : 10.7545/ajip.2013.2.2.150
This paper wanted to find out research trends and its determinants on mobile commerce research reviewing 439 articles from 1999, the starting year of this field to 2012. Our analytical framework has 4 categories such as general, technology, consumer and firm, and 14 sub-categories. The results are as follows: First, studies on mobile commerce can be divided into 5 stages. Second, trends of mobile commerce are closely related to the evolution of mobile technologies such as communication technologies and devices (2G, 3G, 3G+, 4G LTE, LTE-A). Third, this field was led by USA until 2005 and has been led by Taiwan after 2006. Fourth, China, Korea, UK and Canada are also leading countries, all of which have mobile device manufacturers. Research trends of non-manufacturing countries and manufacturing countries are different from each other. In addition, the trends of leading countries are different from each other reflecting each country`s business needs.
A Comparison of Entrepreneurism and Internationalization between Asian World-Class Universities
Timberman, Alex ;
Asian Journal of Innovation and Policy, volume 2, issue 2, 2013, Pages 173~193
DOI : 10.7545/ajip.2013.2.2.173
This paper surveys the development of Asian universities and their path towards the American entrepreneurial type. The paper suggests Asian universities used internationalization and entrepreneurial missions to follow older American entrepreneurial universities with success towards world-class university status. Current studies are lacking on covering the significance of internationalization at Asian entrepreneurial universities and offer few typologies on the diverse Asian transformations of the past approximate thirty years. Thus, paper proposes a theoretical framework linking internationalization with innovation and classifies into 3 types, the various Asian entrepreneurial university transformations from an international comparative perspective. It then examines the type using case studies.
Korea Citation Index and Its Macro Bibliometrics
Kim, Sohyeong ; Choi, Taejin ; Yoon, Aeran ; Seol, Sung-Soo ;
Asian Journal of Innovation and Policy, volume 2, issue 2, 2013, Pages 194~211
DOI : 10.7545/ajip.2013.2.2.194
This paper introduces the Korea Citation Index (KCI) and also some macro statistics of KCI. KCI started service since 2008 by the National Research Foundation of Korea (NRF), but the data has been gathered from 1998. Our findings are as follows: heavy reliance on books in humanities, but papers as the main reference in all other disciplines. Impact factor is an increasing trend in all disciplines. Social science has the highest impact factor among all fields. In some fields even in science and engineering areas, there are more KCI papers than Korean JCR papers and impact factors of the KCI are higher than JCR. As for the distinction between nationally and internationally fields or journals, some disciplines in social science are clearly nationally oriented. NSE journals listed in both KCI and JCR, however, are not clear in terms of impact factor, but clear in terms of the numbers of papers.
ICT Standardization and Innovation Change: Case of ISO Consensus Standardization
Kajiura, Masami ;
Asian Journal of Innovation and Policy, volume 2, issue 2, 2013, Pages 212~239
DOI : 10.7545/ajip.2013.2.2.212
This paper clarifies the change in international technology standardization as a change in innovation. The change comes to be shown in how to take the consensus standard. The tendency to standardize the systematized concept is a rather arduous and complex endeavor. This paper focuses on Mitsubishi Electric Corporation as such a case. The results interpreted from the approach of closed innovation, open innovation, and social innovation. The following findings are clarified by. 1) The consensus standardization is open innovation in which the enterprise creates value. 2) When the value creation is large, the possibility of the maximization of such value capture that achieves the earnings acquisition can be improved. 3. The innovation of the consensus standardization is reciprocal for the stakeholder. The possibility for open and social innovation to supplement the success in innovation mutual and to achieve an effect is suggested.
Insights into Structures in Policy-Driven Inter-Organisational Networks for Innovation: Cases from Malaysia`s MSC Flagships
Omar, Aliza Akmar ; Mohan, Avvari V. ;
Asian Journal of Innovation and Policy, volume 2, issue 2, 2013, Pages 240~264
DOI : 10.7545/ajip.2013.2.2.240
The study compares network structures that emerged in three inter-organisational projects set up under the MSC Malaysia initiative by the Government of Malaysia. These consortia are seen as policy-driven inter-organisational networks and, with data collected through interviews; the links among the organisations are mapped to gain an understanding of the structures that emerged in these networks. The findings provide lessons for other emerging countries that are embarking on similar projects i.e. cluster-oriented developments with policy-driven inter-organisational networks. These findings are seen as particularly useful when emerging countries invest in technology-related projects and invite multinational companies to work together with local firms.
