Innovation Strategy on Post-M&A Innovation Performance
Here's an example to utilize our system in the research, let's take a tour!
Given a real research topic (Chang & Wei, 2016) which focus on how innovation strategy influence post-M&A innovation performance, a research model is developed as the concept below:
Innovation Strategy Similarity
Post-M&A Innovation Performance
Acquire's Innovation Strategy
Like a lot of other research, this study applies patents to indicate innovation for firms. To focus on patent data, these 3 steps are required:
1. Collect patents from a Clean Data
Patents from official USPTO bulk data from 1976 - 2018.
The bulk data contains complete bibliographic information
(title, classification, citations, etc.)
Robust data inspection and cleaning processes with a statistic-based and rule-based inspection.
Search and collect patent data with search engine dedicated for academic research Owlsome Patents.
2. Build Firm-patent Collections
Search patents by keywords, query scripts, or our unique Intelligent Assignee Search tool to build patent collections for research sample
The Intelligent Assignee Search System searches for the most possible firm-name varies by calculates the term similarity according to a given firm name query
The Import tool for users who already have sample data. Simply import a formatted data and let the system builds the collections automatically
3. Compute Patent-related Indicators
Select indicators you need from indicator pool.
Read indicator information, including formula, explanation, and reference.
Modify the indicator by giving different arguments, build ideal indicators according to your research topic.
If you need a unique indicator and it's not found in the pool, we offer indicator customization service for FREE.
