Papers and patents are becoming less disruptive over time

There is growing concern that innovative activity in science and technology is slowing. In this work, we explore these claims at scale, using novel bibliometric and text based analyses. We find evidence of a nearly universal shift across fields of science and technology, such that papers and patents are increasingly less likely to “disrupt” the status quo.
