Does technology management research diverge or converge in developing and developed countries?

Wasti Pamuksuz, Syeda Nazlı
Beyhan, B.
The main purpose of this paper is to understand whether the research of developing and developed countries in the technology management (TM) field converge or diverge in terms of topics, approaches, research focus, and methods. International trends are explored based on the comparison of developed and developing countries' academia, conducted through a content analysis of the main TM journals over the period of 1995-2005. The analysis of a random sample of 325 articles indicates a clear differentiation of major topics studied by developing and developed country academics. The paper ends with a call for future studies to focus more on the particularities of developing countries in order to enrich the TM literature by increasing our understanding of TM theory and its applications in developing countries.

No escape from the dominant theories: The analysis of intellectual pillars of technology management in developing countries
This paper aims to identify the intellectual bases of the technology management (TM) literature generated in developing countries using citation and co-citation analyses and answer the question of whether the intellectual bases of the TM literature created by authors in developing countries diverge from those of the global TM literature. Based on a comprehensive bibliometric analysis of ten technology-innovation management (TIM) specialty journals through the period of 1998-2007, this study produces three i...
The characteristics of financial innovation in developing countries : the case of Turkey
Kılıçaslan, Seda; Cömert, Hasan; Department of Science and Technology Policy Studies (2019)
Financial innovations are one of the important factors affecting the development of financial markets and have attracted more attention in the literature especially after the 1980s. In the existing literature, only a few studies investigate financial innovation processes in developing countries. The main purpose of this study is to investigate the factors influencing the emergence and development processes of financial innovations in Turkey. Thus, it is aimed to fill the gap in the development process of fi...
Does participation in international R&D networks enhance local dynamism?
Erdil, Erkan (2015-01-01)
This chapter which is in line with the global pipelines-local buzz framework addresses the collaboration dynamics of ICT researchers from universities of an emerging economy who are mostly benefiting from national funds and do not have dominating or core roles in international R&D networks. It provides a novel taxonomy to identify the degree of globalisation versus localisation of ICT scientists in Turkey. Based on international and national project portfolios of Turkish ICT researchers who participated in ...
