Intellectual Capital and R&D management

This special issue aims to unveil how Intellectual Capital (IC) is related to R&D Management, R&D projects, and R&D operations. Papers submitted to the special issue should demonstrate an understanding of the main streams in the relevant academic literature, including the role played by appropriability, absorptive capacity, and human resources, as well as the IC peculiarities of innovation networks or ecosystems. Perspectives on issues such as IC – innovation connection, IC disclosure or generating IC, as seen in the context of R&D Management, R&D projects, and R&D operations, will be particularly welcomed. We are interested in studies that are theoretically grounded. Therefore, conceptual papers that develop theory are also welcomed in addition to rigorous empirical studies conducted with accustomed, or more novel methodologies. 

This special issue is promoted through the conference track Intellectual Capital and R&D Management.

As well as the Special Issue, R&D Management Journal would welcome papers from authors submitting to the conference.
