Globalization of Scientific Communication: Evidence from authors in academic journals by country of origin

  title={Globalization of Scientific Communication: Evidence from authors in academic journals by country of origin},
  author={V'it Mach'avcek},
This study measures the tendency to publish in international scientific journals. For each of nearly 35 thousands Scopus-indexed journals, we derive seven globalization indicators based on the composition of authors by country of origin and other characteristics. These are subsequently scaled up to the level of 174 countries and 27 disciplines between 2005 and 2017. The results indicate that advanced countries maintain high globalization of scientific communication that is not varying acrossโ€ฆย 

Figures and Tables from this paper


Globalization of national journals: investigating the growth of international authorship
The results revealed that foreign authorship increased from 36% to 62% during the period, but interregional authorship only grew from 77% to 82%.
Globalization of the social sciences in Eastern Europe: genuine breakthrough or a slippery slope of the research evaluation practice?
The analysis has shown that EE countries with the lower JDI largely base their international scientific production on national journals covered by Web of Science (WoS), which is potentially harmful given the unstable status of EE journals in WoS.
Internationalization of communication a view on the evolution of scientific journals
The process of internationalization of scientific communication throughout the period 1981โ€“97 is described, with some exceptions as Russia in the recent period, where it appears together with the output decline, a counterpart of the disappearance of many journals from SCI.
Bibliometric assessment of national scientific journals
A comprehensive analysis is presented of trends up until 2019 in national orientation and citation impact of national journals entering Scopus, extending outcomes in earlier studies.
Internationalisation in Science in the Prism of Bibliometric Indicators
Powerful engines tend to support internationalisation: self-organisation of scientific communities regardless of national borders; international and supranational top down programmes; side effects ofโ€ฆ
Toward internationalization: A bibliometric analysis of the social sciences in Mainland China from 1979 to 2018
The findings show that the number of social science articles published by Chinese authors in international journals has experienced a noticeable increase, and the collaboration networks of researchers from Mainland China have broadened, with the numberof articles with a Chinese first author showing a strong upward trend.
Open countries have strong science
It is found that although government spending on research and development (R&D) does correlate with the number of publications produced, it does not correlate with scientific impact โ€” at least as assessed by citations, one of the few practical metrics available.
Measuring internationality: Reflections and perspectives on academic journals
It is concluded that internationality is best viewed as a mathematically fuzzy entity and that a single measure Internationality Index, constructed from a combination of suitably weighted criteria, is the only way to unambiguously quantify the degree of internationality.
