Yasuyuki Motoyama and Matthew Eisler, both postdoctoral scholars in the NSF Center for Nanotechnology
in Society at UCSB, have collaborated across disparate working groups to publish an article in
Technological Forecasting and Social Change. The article investigates national productivity in
nanotechnology-related academic publications, a line of investigation that has been largely
neglected in past bibliometric analyses, by integrating economic input and output measures.
By this measure the researchers find that Germany, the UK, and France lead the US.
The article will appear in an upcoming volume, and is currently available online.
