Series: Contributions to Economic Analysis

The book series Contributions to Economic Analysis was established by North-Holland under the editorship of Jan Tinbergen in 1952. Its purpose ever since has been to stimulate the international exchange of scientific information and to reinforce international cooperation by publishing original research in applied economics. The editors and authors of the series represent a broad range of geographic and subject matter interests in economics, and the series includes books from all areas of macroeconomics and microeconomics. These books have in common a quantitative approach to economic problems of practical importance.

Authors of monographs are encouraged to submit their manuscripts to one of the editors for consideration, preferably as soon as a complete draft is available. Authors have the opportunity to revise a manuscript after it is accepted for publication. Manuscripts will be evaluated initially by the editors. Those found suitable for the series in terms of scope and importance of subject matter, length (usually 300-450 pages in manuscript), and style of presentation will then be appraised by an expert referee. The principal criterion is whether the research is of sufficient quality and originality to be a contribution to economic analysis.

Organizers of collective volumes should send a proposal to one of the editors as early as possible in the planning of a project. The proposal should include a preliminary list of articles and a tentative schedule for production. These will be evaluated by the editors in terms of coherence and significance of subject matter, reputation of the contributors, and timeliness of the production schedule. Organizers of the volume must arrange for each article to be carefully refereed as part of the production process. The criterion for inclusion of an article must be the same as for a monograph, namely, q

Volume 286. The Economics of Innovation

Published: 30th May 2008 Series Volume Editors: Roberto Cellini Luca Lambertini
The book is a collection of original research papers by a number of industrial organization economists who are active in the field of R&D theory and policy. The aim is to cover several relevant topics in this field, namely, patent policy, the effects of market structure and the internal organization of the firm on R&D incentives and technical progress, R&D cooperation and technological spillovers, innovation and the entry process. This is being done by providing the reader, at the same time, with new insights on the aforementioned problems, as well as with a comprehensive view of what constitutes the acquired knowledge with respect to the same issues. Additionally, policy insights are given wherever this is appropriate.
