Science and technology development have become critical instruments in the
public policy arena given their demonstrated impact on economic progress, As
a consequence, a wide array of indicators for measuring and mapping
scientific and technological activity, their progress and their outcomes,
has been developed over recent decades (see for instance, European
Commission, 2nd Report on S&T Indicators, 1997). The majority of these
indicators relate to measuring and mapping the published journal and patent
literature. In the second part of this review, we focus on a
tate-of-the-art overview of patent indicators and their multiple uses in
supporting the development of science and technology policy. We also discuss
the limitations and the pitfalls related to their use.
