Abstract Knowledge networks play a vital role in the organizational pursuit of recombinant innovation. Based on the knowledge network, we propose a new concept of recombinant distance and investigate its effect on recombinant innovation. Specifically, we minutely explore the knowledge network to assess the recombinant distance between the knowledge elements of the focal organization and its alliance partners and to examine whether and how the recombinant distance in a knowledge network affects t...

Abstract Whereas most coopetition research tends to conceptualize coopetitors as a homogeneous group, we explicitly consider the heterogeneity of coopetitors. In particular, we examine the impact of a focal firm's technological, market, and geographical overlap with coopetitors on its ability to generate breakthrough inventions. We expect that these different dimensions of overlap and their interactions shape knowledge acquisition opportunities and knowledge leakage risks in coopetition, which i...

Researchers have long studied the effect of network embeddedness on innovation outcomes, resulting in mixed findings. In this paper, we aim to take a novel approach to reconcile prior conflicting perspectives. We argue that previous seemingly discrepant findings may stem from ignoring different forms of network embeddedness and innovation. An innovator has doubly embedded relations in innovation networks: relational and structural embeddedness (SE). Additionally, innovations are categorized into...

In the financial market, many fixed-income analysts focus on trajectories of the hotspots. However, limited attention has been paid to the quantitative and qualitative evolution in a rapidly changing research field of fixed-income securities. This paper identifies intellectual turning points and emerging trends in the fixed-income securities field by using bibliometric methods, visualizing complicated networks including co-keyword networks, journal co-citation networks. Highly cited terms, categ...

Focusing on the direct ties between coopetitors (i.e., direct coopetition network), the extant coopetition research ignores the potential impact of a firm’s indirect connections with other competitors from the same industry via its coopetitors (i.e., indirect coopetition network). We advance coopetition research by comparing the impacts of direct and indirect coopetition networks on a focal firm’s knowledge recombinant capabilities. Moreover, we consider how these impacts are contingent on the s...

ABSTRACTThe selection and establishment of research partners is increasingly important in innovation and strategic research. Using a panel dataset of patents by 2846 researchers from a large US biotechnology company between 1976 and 2013, we examined the relationships between spanning structural holes and partner dynamics, which are captured by the entry of new partners and the persistence of existing partners. Then, we tested the possible moderating effect of dynamic exploratory ability. Based ...

Different from most prior research studying the influence of networks on scientific knowledge creation by taking on a single social-based perspective, this study offers an integrated frame based upon both social-based and knowledge-based views. This study incorporates quantitative bibliometric methods of analysis and network analysis. Based on 51,972 alternative energy patents in 1998–2012, we build knowledge networks composed of technological classifications and social networks capturing collab...

Coopetition, the phenomenon in which firms are simultaneously involved in cooperation and competition, is intriguing in both theoretical and practical terms. Coopetition scholars have started to study the innovation performance implications of the firms’ coopetition. In this dissertation, we point to some important gaps in the existing coopetition literature, which treated direct coopetitors as the same by ignoring their heterogeneity and indirect connections with other competitors via them and ...

Previous research has considered researchers' social capital as a determinant of innovation. However, how individual social capital affects exploitative and exploratory innovations has not yet been sufficiently addressed. The purpose of this study is to demonstrate what and how social capital affects two types of innovations at the researcher level, by positing and testing ego-network dynamics as important mediators of the social capital–innovation process.
