August 2014Why and Wherefore of Increased Scientific Collaboration
with Richard B. Freeman, Ina Ganguli
in The Changing Frontier: Rethinking Science and Innovation Policy, Adam B. Jaffe and Benjamin F. Jones, editors
We examine international and domestic collaborations using an original survey of corresponding authors and Web of Science data of articles that had at least one US coauthor in Particle and Field Physics, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, and Biotechnology and Applied Microbiology. The data identify the connections among coauthors and the views of corresponding authors about the collaboration. We find that collaborations have increased across US cities and between US researchers and researchers abroad. However, they show sufficient similarity to indicate that collaborations are best viewed in many regards as occurring across space broadly rather than in terms of international vs. domestic collaborative activity. We also document that the main reason scientists give for collaborations is to ...
January 2014Why and Wherefore of Increased Scientific Collaboration
with Richard B. Freeman, Ina Ganguli: w19819
This paper examines international and domestic collaborations using data from an original survey of corresponding authors and Web of Science data of articles that had at least one US coauthor in the fields of Particle and Field Physics, Nanoscience and Nanotechnology, and Biotechnology and Applied Microbiology. The data allow us to investigate the connections among coauthors and the views of corresponding authors about the collaboration. We have four main findings. First, we find that US collaborations have increased across US cities as well as across international borders, with the nature of collaborations across cities resembling that across countries. Second, face-to-face meetings are important in collaborations: most collaborators first met working in the same institution and communi...
