Presentation Abstract

This paper examines the life-cycle inventive productivity of Japanese industrial inventors. Using a panel of 1,731 inventors, we explore two issues. First, we examine whether and how inventors with advanced doctorate degrees (PhDs) perform better than their non-PhD counterparts. Second, we examine whether inventors who earned their doctorate degrees on the basis of a dissertation only (PhD-DO) are similarly productive. We found that inventors with traditional PhDs are significantly more productive than inventors with lower education levels, even controlling for their delayed start. We further found that inventors with PhDs-DO have also high productivity, and they work longer as inventors.
