Abstract: This paper aims to increase our understanding of the phenomenon of corporate publishing. To do so, we first systematically review extant literature to identify which incentives lead firms to contribute to publications. We then examine the publication activity of 2,500 firms (and of about 570,000 subsidiaries of these firms) across 20 sectors for the 2011-2015 period. The analysis focuses on characterising firms’ publications activity in terms of proportion of publishing firms by sector; collaboration (co-authorship) with academic institutions; and impact (citations).
