The evolution of triple helix movement: an analysis of scientific communications through bibliometric technique

Marcelo Gonçalves do Amaral, Nathan Ribeiro Messias

Abstract


Objective: The object of this theoretical-empirical work is to analyze the evolution of the Triple Helix movement based on the analysis of the scientific publications database through bibliometric techniques.

Methodology: This is an applied exploratory research. The publications database is structured as an MS Excel file fed manually from the annals of international conferences and other publications. The database is periodically frozen and the main authors, institutions, countries of origin, and topics are counted.

Originality: The work is original in the idea of knowing an academic movement through its results.

Main results: The database gathers 2,700 inputs (24% journal papers, 70% conferences communications, and 6% books, chapters, and others). These communications were written by 3,465 authors, an average of 1.28 authors per work. As expected, the creators of the concept, Henry Etzkowitz and Loet Leydesdorff, together or with partners, are responsible for 9.4% of all communications. Countries such as Brazil, the UK, the USA, Russia, and Italy are very active in the movement and organizing a conference was crucial to the dissemination of the concept in their countries.

Theoretical contributions: The work contributes to a better understanding of the field of action of the Triple Helix theme. It is useful for researchers looking for literature, gaps, and research topics.

Management contributions: The work presents contributions to the Triple Helix Association in the management of the movement and to conference organizers, in general universities, and their partners.
