This paper discusses the role of the Chinese government in supporting and coordinating large-scale ICT system deployments and implementation, by-passing dilemmas that have beset more laissez-faire economies. <B>Design/methodology/approach</B> – This paper is based on two case studies in China: public digital switching systems in the 1990s and 3G mobile standards recently. The former is a typical complex system and the latter exemplifies infrastructural technology. From the tradition of science and technology studies, it incorporates historical approach into a socio-technical discourse of the process and examines the operational practices of the Chinese government in different stages. <B>Findings</B> – The paper demonstrates the pivotal role of government in the case of a latecomer country like China in developing and implementing complex and infrastructural ICT systems. While development of such socio-technical systems has presented challenges in many countries, the findings show the transition of socio-technical context in China has provided the best operational platform for the government to perform its roles. <B>Originality/value</B> – Most research into innovation capabilities focuses on technological matters, while this paper also addresses the social context, institutional mechanisms and roles for coordinating different resources and players involved. In this way, it raises questions for conventional thinking in the West that market systems can perform the best in innovation. Article literatinetwork@emeraldinsight.com (Xiaobai Shen, Barry J. Naughton) Fri, 04 Oct 2013 00:00:00 +0100 Network structural analysis of technology: a study from patent perspective http://www.emeraldinsight.com/journals.htm?issn=1758-552X&volume=4&issue=3&articleid=17101240&show=abstract http://www.emeraldinsight.com/10.1108/JSTPC-01-2013-0001 <strong>Abstract</strong><br /><br /><B>Purpose</B> – The purpose of this paper is to analyze the network structure of technology in and between different fields, as well as the evolution of their relations. <B>Design/methodology/approach</B> – Using the patent data in Derwent Innovation Index (DII) from 1991 to 2010, this paper analyzes the co-classification of Derwent Manual Code (DMC) of patents in all technology fields. Large-scaled co-classification matrices are employed to generate the DMC co-classification networks. In addition, analyses are pursued at different levels of aggregation in four five-year windows: 1991-1995, 1996-2000, 2001-2005 and 2006-2010. Using Girvan-Newman algorithm in the clustering process, the structure transformations over time are detected. <B>Findings</B> – The paper identifies the key technological knowledge in certain fields and finds out how different technological fields are connected and integrated. What is more, the dynamic evolution between networks in different time periods reveals the trend of generic technology development in the macroscopic level. <B>Originality/value</B> – The paper investigates a large quantity of data – all the patent data in DII from 1991 to 2010 in this paper. The paper applies Girvan-Newman algorithm in the co-classification analysis and uses co-classification networks to reveal technology network structures. Evolution coincident with the realistic technological shifts can be observed.
