This study applies two variables in the measurement of company patent deployment strategies: patent family depth and earn plan ratio. Patent family depth represents the degree to which certain fields and markets are valued by the patent owner. Earn plan ratio defined as the ratio of the number of patent forward citations to patent family size. Earn plan ratio indicates the degree to which a patent family could be cited by later innovators and competitors. This study applies a logistic regression model in the analysis LED industry data. The results demonstrate that patent value has a positive relationship with the patent family depth, and earn plan ratio.

This study employs a panel threshold regression model to test whether the patent h–index has a threshold effect on the relationship between patent citations and market value in the pharmaceutical industry. It aims to bridge the gap in extant research on this topic. This study demonstrates that the patent h–index has a triple threshold effect on the relationship between patent citations and market value. When the patent h–index is less than or equal to the lowest threshold, 4, there is a positive relationship between patent citations and market value. This study indicates that the first regime (where the patent h–index is less than or equal to 4) is optimal, because this is where the extent of the positive relationship between patent citations and market value is the greatest.

PURPOSE: This study aimed to examine differences in depressive symptoms between urban and rural workers in mainland China and to identify community factors that could contribute to such residential differences. METHODS: This study used nationally representative data from the 2014 China's Labor Force Dynamic Survey. Data were collected through face-to-face interviews on a sample of 22,073 participants from 29 provinces of China, including 15,098 rural workers (Mage = 44.92, standard deviation ( SD) = 14.85) and 6,975 urban workers (Mage = 43.28, SD = 13.62). Mediators included community cohesion, foreseeable community threat, supportive network size and medical benefit coverage. Mediation analyses were conducted using Hayes' SPSS Macro Process for multiple mediators. RESULTS: Urban participants reported fewer depressive symptoms than their rural counterparts. Lower levels of community cohesion, higher community foreseeable threat and poorer medical coverage were related to fewer depressive symptoms. Rural-urban differences were mediated by community cohesion ( B = -0.12, p < .01), foreseeable community threat ( B = -0.08, p < .01) and medical benefit coverage ( B = 0.25, p < .01). CONCLUSION: This study sheds light on distinctive roles of community factors in explaining rural-urban differences in depressive symptoms. Policies or programs should be designed to promote strengths and address weaknesses in rural communities.
Research funding in Taiwan's technological and vocational universities is mainly sourced from those scientific and technological projects which were assigned by government, industries or other organizations. It plays an important role in influencing innovation activities, development of new knowledge, and advancement of new-generation technologies. As technology dynamics over time, technological and vocational universities have missions to associate with that. To achieve their missions, more funding supports from university/industry/government are demanded. By analyzing data for Taiwan technology and vocational universities, the object of this study is to investigate a series of indices such as number of patents, patent nationality, number of paper publications, category of paper publications, and their funding sources. We also examine whether and how the faculties' age, education level, academic level, and research performance affect the three types of funding sources from governments, industries, and other organizations. The results have indicated that funding sources in Taiwan's technological and vocational universities are closely referred to the number of patents and paper publications, suggesting that the faculties needs to justify their paper publication and patenting strategies accordingly. Moreover, faculties' age, and academic level have played a positive influence on obtaining funding. Policymakers and universities could consider the general distribution and tendency of the three types of research funding investment and give proper incentives to guide their faculties' research interests and achievements.
