Content Analysis, Semantic Model, Subject Area, Innovations, Commercialization, Diffusion of Innovations


Purpose: This study discusses a brief summary of a retrospective content analysis of scientific literature related to the commercialization of university scientists’ innovative developments.

Methodology: A retrospective content analysis of the main theoretical concepts related to the research problem was used to achieve this goal. The source of information for the study was two search engines.

Result: The Data Source for the study is two search engines – Google Scholar and eLIBRARY.RU. As a result of the study, a semantic subject research area is identified including a system of concepts interrelated with the commercialization of innovations: diffusion of innovations, innovations transfer, technologies transfer and spillover of innovations.

Applications: This research can be used for universities, teachers, and students.

Novelty/Originality: In this research, the model of Commercialization of University Innovative Developments: A Retrospective Analysis of Theoretical Approaches to Research is presented in a comprehensive and complete manner.
