چکیده

Nowadays, the changes in the dominant economic models, the emergence of knowledge-based economy and the lack of research budgets have caused the academic and research centers to pay attention to the commercialization of research findings.‎ Although, there exist some studies pertaining to this topic, most of them have dealt with natural sciences rather than humanities and soft technology.‎ To bridge this gap, the current study tries to identify and overcome the barriers to commercialization of research findings in humanities using a contextual theory and an interpretive approach.‎ The study uses qualitative methods in three steps.‎ In the first step, previous studies related to this topic are scrutinized and several barriers to research commercialization are extracted.‎ Then, in the second step, Delphi method is utilized to examine the extent of the influence of each barrier and identify more items.‎ Finally, grounded theory is used to present a conceptual framework for the barriers to research commercialization in humanities.‎ According to the findings, the most important barriers are related to policymaking, legal rights, resources, infrastructure, intrinsic value of humanities, technological nature of humanities, and behavior of the actors.‎
