Abstract and Keywords

The flow of knowledge from a university research park is not a new theme in the academic domain. Scholars have emphasized the flow of knowledge from university research parks, but those that have focused on the prevalence of this phenomenon in the United States have been somewhat limited in the availability of data related both to the genesis of the park and to the performance of the park. This chapter focuses on two performance measures: patents received and scholarly publications emanating from the research conducted by in-park firms. It finds that on-park firms have received more patents than comparable off-park firms, and the scientists in the on-park firms have published more scholarly articles than scientists in comparable off-park firms, all else remaining constant.

Keywords: university research park, patent, scholarly publication, innovation, flow of knowledge
