Hide / Show Abstract

OECD’s biennial statistical publication that brings together over 200 figures to help examine emerging policy issues in science and technology such as: the international mobility of researchers and scientists, the growth of the information economy, innovation by regions and industries, innovation strategies by companies, the internationalisation of research, the changing role of multinational enterprises, and new patterns in trade competitiveness and productivity. By providing a wide array of indicators for policy analysis, the OECD Science, Technology and Industry (STI) Scoreboard has become a widely used reference which combines statistical rigour with easy access and readability. The key findings are presented as bullet points alongside graphs highlighting the relative importance of countries. In addition, brief technical notes provide further methodological details on the indicators, along with links to useful references and data sources. The STI Scoreboard 2007 is available in book and online form and provides easy access to individual sections and links to the databases used. The Web version also gives users "clickable" access to the ExcelTM spreadsheets containing the data used in charts and figures.
