Abstract

Purpose

Based upon the review of theoretical frameworks and the author's practical experiences in intellectual property (IP) management, the purpose of this paper is to propose a theoretical framework which intends to accord the current development of IP management and strategy in China. It is constituted of two engines, namely innovation engine and intellectual property engine which are related closely to management of technology – a strategic instrument in creating wealth and prosperity. The latter is also stated “5‐IPs” management pattern, i.e. intellectual property advantages, intellectual property economy, intellectual property strategy, intellectual property talents, and intellectual property culture as essential factors.

Design/methodology/approach

Briefly, elaborating basic concepts and main characteristics of “5‐IPs”, this work discusses the theoretical framework and the application of these pattern in Henan Province of PRC.

Findings

This work presents a whole picture of how the policy makers in Henan Province developed and implemented its IP management strategy. Theoretically, this work presents a strategic framework, which intends to create an innovation model and enables the decision‐makers and IP practitioners to make more appropriate arrangement when addressing IP related issues.

Originality/value

This study presents the crucial tenets of the strategic framework, which underpins the identification of the appropriateness and effectiveness of China's intellectual property right (IPR) strategy. The distinctiveness of the study lies in: advancing the current literature on the establishment of IPR system in China; presenting a case study of Henan Province in terms of how the province has developed its IP management strategy; and assessing the leading changes, impact and the policy implication after the implementation of the project.

Abstract

Purpose

The fractional complex transform is used to convert the fractional differential equation to its differential partner and the exp-function method is to solve the resultant equation. The exact solutions for the equation are successfully established. The paper aims to discuss these issues.

Design/methodology/approach

Use the chain rule of the local fractional derivative and the exp-function method.

Findings

Some new exact solutions for the fractional differential equation are successfully established, and the process of the solution is extremely simple and remarkably accessible.

Originality/value

The fractional complex transform is used to convert the fractional differential equation to its differential partner and the exp-function method is to solve the resultant equation.

Abstract

Purpose

This study aims to understand the epistemic foundation of the classification applied in the first Chinese library catalogue, the Seven Epitomes (Qilue).

Design/methodology/approach

Originating from a theoretical stance that situates knowledge organization in its social context, the study applies a multifaceted framework pertaining to five categories of textual data: the Seven Epitomes; biographical information about the classificationist Liu Xin; and the relevant intellectual, political, and technological history.

Findings

The study discovers seven principles contributing to the epistemic foundation of the catalogue's classification: the Han imperial library collection imposed as the literary warrant; government functions considered for structuring texts; classicist morality determining the main classificatory structure; knowledge perceived and organized as a unity; objects, rather than subjects, of concern affecting categories at the main class level; correlative thinking connecting all text categories to a supreme knowledge embodied by the Six Classics; and classicist moral values resulting in both vertical and horizontal hierarchies among categories as well as texts.

Research limitations/implications

A major limitation of the study is its focus on the main classes, with limited attention to subclasses. Future research can extend the analysis to examine subclasses of the same scheme. Findings from these studies may lead to a comparison between the epistemic approach in the target classification and the analytic one common in today's bibliographic classification.

Originality/value

The study is the first to examine in depth the epistemic foundation of traditional Chinese bibliographic classification, anchoring the classification in its appropriate social and historical context.
