KOFINAS, Alexander  e  SAUR-AMARAL, Irina. 25 years of knowledge creation processes in pharmaceutical contemporary trends. Comport. Organ. Gest. [online]. 2008, vol.14, n.2, pp.257-280. ISSN 0872-9662.

The pharmaceutical industry is knowledge and research-intensive. Due to technological, socio-political and organisational changes there has been a continuous evolution in the knowledge base utilized to achieve and maintain competitive advantages in this global industry. There is a gap in analysing the linkages and effects of those changes on knowledge creation processes associated with pharmaceutical R&D activities. Our paper looks to fill this gap. We built on an idiosyncratic research approach - the systematic literature review - and looked to unearth current trends affecting knowledge creation in international/global pharmaceutical R&D. We reviewed scientific papers published between 1980 and 2005. Key findings include promising trends in pharmaceutical innovation and human resource management, and their potential implications on current R&D practices within the pharmaceutical industry, from managerial and policy-making perspectives.

Palavras-chave : Knowledge creation; pharmaceutical industry; systematic review; global R & D.
