Contents Notes
I. What role for human resource data in tracking innovation? -- II. Principal sources of human resource data -- III. Research applications of human resource data -- IV. Enhancing the utility of human resource data. "This volume is the summary of a second STEP workshop, chaired by board memder Mark Myers, formerly chief technical officer of Xerox Corporation. The workshop explored how data on scientists, engineers, and other professionals-data on their training and skills, mobility and career paths, use of time, relationships across institutions and sectors, and productivity-can be used to illuminate aspects of innovation that current R & D, patent and other data, by themselves, do not fully capture."--P. viii, Preface.
