Dissertation/Thesis Abstract

The impact of university patenting on mobility of scientists
by Ye, Xi, M.Sc., Singapore Management University (Singapore), 2012, 52; 1548075
Abstract (Summary)

After the passage of Bayh-Dole Act, universities have been actively involved in patenting. At the same time, the booming of university patenting has brought up huge controversies and debates in academia. A large body of literature is devoted, from a broad macro-level view, to investigate the impact of intellectual property rights (IPR) on the research activities of universities. However, very few empirical studies have been conducted to study the impact of university patenting on the mobility of individuals who have been granted these patents. This study, aiming to provide a different insight to the extant literature, employs data from U.S. Patenting and Trademark Office (USPTO) to empirically test the impact of university patenting activities on the decisions of scientists to choose between public and private sector.
