obviously not an easy task to achieve a distortion-free evaluation of effects from a research assessment exercise when such evaluation is based on results over a period of time when there are changes in methodologies, criteria or indicators of the exercises

that the exploration of the evolution of NST in time and space is a theme of prime importance, given the strong implications this might have for policy, industrial economics, management of scientific research and technology transfer. In particular the

Abstract  

Abandonement rates of patents in five European countries are studied. The time distribution of British patents can be described by a truncated Gauss' distribution, of Belgian patents by a Poisson's distribution. Appropriate models derived on the base of the octogonal and cubical linear vector space norms are discussed.

In this article, “Life time of influence” refers to Robert K. Merton's impact broadly, and emblematically, to his influence upon my work. The article discusses 1) the scope and influence of Merton's ideas about social structure and explanations of social processes; 2) his vast scholarship establishing the study of science as a social institution, with implications for theory and research; and 3) his fostering of the social study of science through immense published work, and through impact upon an inter-generational network of scholars.

Abstract  

Sequential estimation of parameters for time series observations is considered. The Chow-Robbins procedure is extended and Wald’s identity is proven for such data. Various confidence bands are defined. These give simultaneous confidence intervals for a sequence of sample sizes.
