International Collaboration

It is accepted that there is a correlation between scientific productivity and collaboration intensity as a whole. Some studies used bibliometric measures to focus on international collaboration, counting coauthored papers from two or more countries. Several studies have shown that international papers are generally cited more than domestic papers; the benefits of international collaboration are strengthened when they result in coauthored articles (Abramo et al., 2011; Glanzel and Schubert, 2005; Persson, 2010; Schmoch and Schubert, 2008; Van Raan, 1998).

Other studies give some global pictures and trends on international collaboration as a relevant and important driver of science dynamics (Eisend and Schmidt, 2013; Gazni et al., 2012; Han et al., 2014; He et al., 2009; Heitor and Bravo, 2010; Jeong and Choi, 2012; Jeong et al., 2011; Knobel et al., 2013; Lemarchand, 2012; Leung, 2013; Leydesdorff and Wagner, 2008; Lopez Lopez et al., 2010; Onyancha and Maluleka, 2011; Rojas-Sola et al., 2009; Smith, 2010; Vasconcelos et al., 2009).
