The spatial organization of the news industry: Questioning assumptions about knowledge externalities for clustering of creative industries

Vang-Lauridsen, Jan LU (2007) In Innovation: Management, Policy & Practice 9(1). p.14-27
Abstract
The importance ascribed to knowledge externalities for understanding the spatial organization of industries (i.e. clustering) is increasingly being exposed to critical theoretical and empirical scrutiny. This research has not yet spilled over into studies of creative industries. This paper is concerned with reducing this omission by making an empirically based assessment of the importance of respectively knowledge internalities and externalities for the spatial organization of the news industry. The paper documents how the identified spatial organization can complement the existing literature on the importance of knowledge externalities for clustering of creative industries.
