Do central country authors of an international co-authored publication network obtain a high research impact from their international co-authored publications? This study addressed the issue by examining countries' quantity of scientific publications. We proposed that countries with fewer scientific publications would gain more benefits from their...
Article
Previous research has found a relationship between structural holes of knowledge networks, tie strength of knowledge networks, and creativity. Our study extends these findings by proposing that characteristics of R&D employees' team knowledge networks influence their acquired diversified knowledge from the team, which is critical to creativity. Our...
Article
Encouraging internal research and development collaboration has been recognized as an effective management strategy to facilitate firms' innovation. The reasons include that extensive collaboration among employees may promote the flow of diversified knowledge, bring forth novel knowledge combination and in turn facilitate firms' innovation. To put...

This paper investigates the complementary or substitute relationship between knowledge searching in teams and in professional virtual forums (PVFs) will depend on the motivations of knowledge searching. We select creative thinking as an intrinsic motivation of knowledge searching in teams and expertize identification as an extrinsic motivation of e...
Article
Our study extends the relationship between paternalistic leadership and employee creativity by identifying employee organizational identification as a mediator and employee perceived job security as a moderator. Results based on the data of 378 employees from a large bank in China indicated that employee perceived job security moderated the relatio...
Article
Research on the team diversity-team creativity relationship has been mixed. We present and empirically examine a model of mediated moderation in which team knowledge sharing intervenes in the impact of the interaction of team work value diversity and positive mood on team creativity. Survey participants included 458 employees working in 47 R&D team...
Article
Employee creativity is thought to be a source of organizational innovation which in turn is a source of competitive advantage for organizations. Little research has examined what employees’ identities are correlated with their creativity. In a sample of 383 research and design (R&D) employees and their supervisors from aerospace research and design...

Empirical studies on the relationship between affect and creativity often produce conflicting results. This inconsistency has led us to believe that the relationship between affect and creativity may be better understood by looking at potential moderators. Our study looked specifically at trait affect and self-perceived creativity. Using the Affect...
Article
Embodied creativity training is action-based and aims to improve participants’ creative ability rather than delivery knowledge or information of creative theories. This paper introduced embodied creativity training practices in Denmark, United States, and China. This paper categorizes the related embodied creativity training programs into three gro...

Article
Accessing knowledge is an important component of managing research and development (R&D) employee creativity. Although previous literature on creativity highlights the value of external diversified knowledge and the centrality of intra-team knowledge network to creativity, the effects of accessed external knowledge characteristics on the network po...

What are the personal characteristics that distinguish the creative scientist from the less creative scientist? This study used the concept of implicit theory in a four-part study of scientists and graduate students in science. In the first part, we collected 1382 adjective words that describe the personal characteristics of the creative scientist...
Article
Chinese paternalistic leadership (PL) includes three dimensions: benevolence, morality and authoritarianism. Benevolent leadership positively affects organizational citizenship behaviors through leader-member exchange (LMX). Resource limitations of supervisors bring about LMX differentiations within groups. Little research has addressed the moderat...
Article
Many scientific inventions (SI) throughout history were inspired by heuristic prototypes (HPs). For instance, an event or piece of knowledge similar to displaced water from a tub inspired Archimedes' principle. However, the neural mechanisms underlying this insightful problem solving are not very clear. Thus, the present study explored the neural c...

Article
The impact of team knowledge network structure on team creativity has seldom been explored. To address this gap, we argue that research and development (R&D) teams' radical creativity is not only associated with the source of diversified knowledge (insiders of the team, outsiders of the team and internet professional forums), but also with team kno...

However, up to now the impact of R&D employees’ connect with PVF on their creativity sti...
Article
The relationship between team identification and expertise identification in the R&D context and the mechanism by which these variables influence R&D creativity is not yet clear. We present and empirically test a theoretical framework proposing that knowledge sharing mediates the relationship between identification and creativity in R&D teams. Base...

To study implicit concepts of creativity in computer science in the United States and mainland China, we first asked 308 Chinese computer scientists for adjectives that would describe a creative computer scientist. Computer scientists and non-computer scientists from China (N = 1069) and the United States (N = 971) then rated how well those adjecti...
