  • Institutional Collaboration in Global Science - Scimago Lab Blog
    links as the wide contact front between institutions from both regions highlights Meanwhile the self organizational system of World Science keeps on pushing outwards to traditionally peripheral regions Asia Latin America Middle East and Africa despite these regions currently exhibit larger Growth Rates than central ones In fact despite the impressive increasingly important role played by Asia in Global Research Outputs mainly due to Chinese Science grown their institutions are still far from reaching the reputation levels achieved by some European and Northern American s Research Institutions hence the outlying position showed by the Asian Cluster It is so even though Asia and Northern America have strong collaborations links affecting many Asiatic Countries Latin America Oceania and Middle East These regions maintain priority collaboration links at a regional scale with at least two regions each Latin America with Europe mainly Spain and Portugal and Northern America in this case the picture shows that Latin America Europe collaboration links are so intense that the boundary between both regions is not well defined in the map Similarly the deep links that Australian and New Zeeland Research Institution has with Northern American counterparts lead to the blurred boundaries observed in the map between Oceania and Northern American Regional Clusters Featured Neighborhoods The Middle East region deserves an isolated view It is the unique region divided into two separated areas in the map Arabic countries are placed at the bottom of the map primarily connected to Europe mainly East Europe white nodes and a lesser extent to Asia and Northern America while Israel sets itself in the junction of Europe Northern America and Latin America The overlapping nodes from Western and Eastern Europe depict only one research cluster for Europe suggesting there is not Western Europe separated from Eastern Europe in terms of Research Collaboration African Institutions share their collaboration links between Europe and Middle East Japanese Institutions fit their institutional links among the Northern American collaboration web Further Analyses It turns out obvious that the relative weight of Biomedicine and Health Sciences is very important in this kind of representation given the skewed thematic distribution shown by the world research output and the fact that all those papers with authors belonging to the same institutions are excluded In the future will be appropriate to carry out more thorough analyses devoted to concrete scientific fields where possible collaboration pattern differences are highlighted meanwhile this post can serve as a discussion provoking contribution Félix de Moya Anegón is Research Professor at the Institute of Public Goods and Policies IPP from the Spanish National Research Council CSIC his academic interests include scientometrics bibliometrics research evaluation and science policy he has published around 100 papers in these fields He is SCImago Research Group s main researcher where he has led renowned bibliometic projects including Scimago Journal Country Rank Scimago Institution Rankings and The Atlas of Science Prof De Moya is also advisor for Science Policy issues for national organizations of science and technology and research institutions around

  • The research impact of National Higher Education Systems - Scimago Lab Blog
    to obtain a fair measurement of such impact its calculation removes the influence due to institutions size and research profile making it ideal for comparing research performance More Félix de Moya Anegón is Research Professor at the Institute of Public Goods and Policies IPP from the Spanish National Research Council CSIC his academic interests include scientometrics bibliometrics research evaluation and science policy he has published around 100 papers in these fields He is SCImago Research Group s main researcher where he has led renowned bibliometic projects including Scimago Journal Country Rank Scimago Institution Rankings and The Atlas of Science Prof De Moya is also advisor for Science Policy issues for national organizations of science and technology and research institutions around the world 9 Responses M ª Luisa Maquedano says February 9 2011 at 4 18 pm Congratulations on your new blog This is a suitable tool to receive alerts on this topic however I am missing a RSS button to integrate the blog with my personal feeds yusef says February 9 2011 at 4 33 pm Thanks M Luisa We just placed a RSS icon prominently on the top right corner Pablo de Castro says February 10 2011 at 3 23 pm Dear colleagues Thank you for opening this new window for debate in the area and allow me to write in English too for expanding feedback opportunities Just wanted to briefly comment on this statement while one can easily find large Japanese and Korean Companies carrying out high profile research amongst the world s Top 100 ordered by NI it is otherwise hard to find a Japanese or Korean university in the same ranking Top 400 at the very interesting Jan 31st post When one checks university rankings other than the SIR World Report 2010 as for instance the Jan 2011 Web Ranking of World Universities as published by the CCHS Cybermetrics Lab at http www webometrics info top12000 asp one may find two Japanese universities among the best 25 making Japan the best country after the US Tokyo and Kyoto being also among the top60 at the THE university ranking for 2010 http www timeshighereducation co uk world university rankings 2010 2011 top 200 html Even if report methodologies may vary among different rankings one gets a slight impression when looking at them of what back at my physics studies we used to call the big point approach in statistical analysis meaning statistical data may be easily twisted if desired to support practically any statistical hypothesis In this particular case my point would be it is quite a way to go yet until assessment standards for university performance are sound and reliable enough although great progress has been recently made in the field At this point however basing management strategies on such information alone is probably quite risky Thank you Félix de Moya says February 14 2011 at 1 42 pm Thank you for your interest You are quite right in your comment and I cannot agree more
