Abstract: Industry-academia collaboration has become a subject of great
interest to academics, industry leaders and policymakers, as it is now
acknowledged that such relationships are valuable for innovation. The aim
of the study reported here is to explore collaboration trends over time in
the field of membrane use for water treatment by carrying out bibliometric
analysis of scientific publications related to the field. It is part of a
broader project looking at factors that influence industry-academia
collaborative research in the water sector. Thousand six hundred and
seventy eight papers from eight journals from the years 1967 to 2001 were
analysed for co-authorship patterns. Thousand three hundred and seventy
papers from the last decade were examined for a snapshot view of inter-
institutional, cross-disciplinary, industry-academic and international
collaboration trends. Results show that the field is highly collaborative
with the majority (87%) of papers involving two or more authors. In terms
of industry-academic collaboration, there was an increase in the number of
papers from 1994 onwards, and a very high proportion (91%) were cross-
disciplinary. (c) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
