Summary  

This paper suggests an international benchmarking method of disembodied knowledge flow structure. Using patent citation as a proxy measure of disembodied knowledge flow, national knowledge network is developed. Structural equivalence measure is applied to comparing the knowledge network of Korea and Taiwan with that of USA. Static and dynamic comparison make it possible to benchmark disembodied knowledge flow structure efficiently and identify  convergent and divergent industries between developing countries and USA. It is also a meso-study that could be conducive to building a comprehensive analytical framework of national innovation system.
