Oslo Manual 2018
Guidelines for Collecting, Reporting and Using Data on Innovation, 4th Edition
What is innovation and how should it be measured? Understanding the scale of innovation
activities, the characteristics of innovative firms and the internal and systemic
factors that can influence innovation is a prerequisite for the pursuit and analysis
of policies aimed at fostering innovation. First published in 1992, the Oslo Manual
is the international reference guide for collecting and using data on innovation.
In this fourth edition, the manual has been updated to take into account a broader
range of innovation-related phenomena as well as the experience gained from recent
rounds of innovation surveys in OECD countries and partner economies and organisations.
