The Web and innovation systems are interacting
complex systems that impact each other. Web
indicators used to inform decision-makers about
the impact they are having on each must be reproducible and relevant. Web metrics research is
young and best-practice methodologies for producing robust indicators are evolving. This study
describes a methodology for producing robust
indicators of the web presence of the European
and Canadian innovation systems. It demonstrates that the emergent properties and scaling
characteristics expected of complex systems are
captured by these indicators. It illustrates how
these indicators can be used to measure the
amount of recognition a nation or province’s
web presence receives from other nations and
provinces in their innovation systems.
