dc.description.abstractUsing patent citation data for the U.S., we test whether knowledge spillovers inbiotechnology are sensitive to distance. Controlling for self-citation by inventor, assigneeand examiner, cohort-based regression analysis shows that spillovers are local but thatdistance is becoming less important with time. Network analysis paints a picture of astable network between states, but a changing environment between individual actors,with a growing importance of connectedness. The popular maxim that everyone isconnected by six degrees of separation is tested with surprising results.en_US
