Abstract

This article examines how collaborating with industry influences the academic scientist's collaborations with scientists at other universities (cross-university collaboration). Government policies have actively encouraged academics in different universities to collaborate with one another, but contract requirements stemming from academic–industrial collaborations often influence the ways in which academics can collaborate. The major findings from this article show that collaborating with industry appears to be linked to increasing levels of cross-university collaboration.
