Description:

This study systematically explores, analyses, reports on and synthesises research on the topic of sectoral innovation systems related to agriculture and agri-food in OECD countries. It is based on systematic mapping of the literature (academic papers published in scientific journals) in the period 1997-2017. The aim is to show the state of current knowledge on sectoral innovation systems in agri-food, in order to identify knowledge gaps and future areas for research and provide methodological and theoretical perspectives. Abstracts for a total of 320 papers were analysed, using a qualitative approach. Key elements of agricultural innovation systems identified were organised into 8 main themes/topics: agents, basic technologies, knowledge and learning processes, mechanisms of interaction, institutions, end-users, system transition and contextual variables. Areas identified as requiring research included making the sector more consumer- and market-oriented, increasing interactions outside conventional system boundaries, including the consumer perspective and societal changes, and determining the

Sampling procedure:

Total universe/Complete enumeration
A systematic mapping of the literature has been made. Initially 41,551 items were retrieved from the data bases Web of Science Core Collection, Scopus and CABI. Through a systematic screening process, duplicates and papers deemed irrelevant have been excluded from the mapping, first based on titles and thereafter based on full abstracts.

Description:

All the items included in the mapping were given a unique identification number. The data file (excel) shows the list of items included in the mapping and items removed in the latest stage of the screening process, together with a note on the reason for exclusion. Items only pertaining to innovation at firm level, without special attention to sectoral systems or AKIS, were excluded from the mapping in the screening process and not given an identification number. The items selected for the mappin

Description:

Key elements in the 320 items included in the mapping were recorded, based on the abstracts. The key elements, subject or main findings were then summarised in a qualitative interpretation based on the abstracts.

The key elements were thematised and categorised following the thematic analysis method. This process was performed manually, using an ordinary word processor and the recorded key elements from the Excel sheet. The elements were sorted following a theoretical framing. The final synth
