Dear colleagues, 
The special issue of Scientometrics based on the Triple Helix Conference
2005 is now complete. The ToC reads as follows: 
Loet Leydesdorff and Martin Meyer: The Scientometrics of a
<http://www.leydesdorff.net/sci06th5/index.htm> Triple Helix of
university-industry-government relations. (Introduction to the topical

Abstract: We distinguish between an internal differentiation of science and
technology that focuses on instrumentalities and an external differentiation
in terms of the relations of the knowledge production process to other
social domains, notably governance and industry. The external contexts bring
into play indicators and statistical techniques other than publications,
patents, and citations. Using regression analysis, for example, one can
examine the importance of knowledge and knowledge spill-over for economic
development. The relations can be expected to vary among nations and
regions. The field-specificity of changes is emphasized as a major driver of
the research agenda. In a knowledge-based economy, institutional
arrangements can be considered as support structures for cognitive
