This comment considers the approaches expressed in the books by Gibbons et
al., The New Production of Knowledge (11994) and Nowotny et al., Re-Thinking
Science (2001), and in the body of work pioneered over the last few years by
Henry Etzkowitz and Loet Leydesdorff which expounds the 'Triple Helix'
analysis of industry/ university/ government relations. Citation analyses
and Internet search data are used to explore the geographical locations,
audiences and 'impact' of this work. The strengths and weaknesses of these
approaches are discussed, and the challenge of ensuring that they become
more than fleeting fads, nourishing an unproductive frenzy, but develop so
as to contribute something enduring to scholarship and practice.

Author Keywords:
citations, dynamics of research, endless transition,
industry/university/government relations, innovation, Mode 1, Mode 2,
policy, socially robust knowledge
