Halevi, G., & Moed, H. F. International Scientific Migration and Collaboration Patterns – Following a Bibliometrics Line of Investigation. Elsevier, New York, 2012. Pages: 22.
This article presents a study on international scientific migration and collaboration patterns, using a bibliometrics approach and drawing on the affiliation countries of authors of articles in peer reviewed scientific journals indexed in the Scopus database. Data from 17 countries have been included in the analysis. The authors have found that international scientific migration patterns are different from collaboration patterns (co-authorship). The results indicate that common language and geographical proximity are more strongly related to migration patterns than to collaboration. In addition, the effect of political tensions has been shown to influence to a higher extent collaboration patterns, when compared to migration patterns.
