Our journey through the scholarly landscape 2 World Country Institute Author Article
The Global Scholarly Landscape Growth in output Mapping science 3
Growth of scholarly communications 4 ~3% per year
Who is feeling the pressure to over publish? 6 Significant difference between subset and total 45% UK Japan Canada France Germany Spain China Italy Russia I feel pressurised to publish more research articles rather than fewer higher quality research articles n= 1,635 All Subjects USA
Mapping science from web logs 7 Bollen J, Van de Sompel H, Hagberg A, Bettencourt L, et al. (2009) Clickstream Data Yields High- Resolution Maps of Science. PLoS ONE 4(3): e4803. doi:10.1371/journal.pone.0004803 http://www.plosone.org/article/info:doi /10.1371/journal.po ne.0004803
Mapping science from citations 8 Richardson, M (2012), “Citography: the visualization of nineteen thousand journals through their recent citations”, Research Trends, issue 26 January 2012 http://www.researchtrends.com/issue26-january-2012/citography-the-visualization-of-nineteen- thousand-journals-through-their-recent-citations/
National Perspectives Collaboration patterns Insights on Mexico 9
11 Field-weighted citation impact Less than world average > world but < UK average Greater than UK average All papers from a countryCollaborative papers with UK International collaboration increases impact
Mobility increases impact 12 Migratory researcher = permanent or returnee (2 or more years abroad) Transitory researcher = less than 2 years abroad Relative Productivity = articles per year relative to all USA researchers Relative Seniority = years of publication activity relative to all USA researchers
Global migration patterns 13 Study country: UK To-country% migration USA28.7 AUS6.9 GER6.1 CAN5.4 FRA4.8 ITA3.3 Study country: USA To-country% migration UK10.6 CAN9.7 CHN9.6 GER8.6 South Korea5.0 JPN4.6 Study country: CHN To-country% migration USA50.4 JPN8.3 CAN6.0 UK5.5 SGP5.2 GER4.2
