Australia Substantially Increases Research Collaboration With China

View as: Print Mobile App Share:

A study from Thomson Reuters released Tuesday (March 9) shows broadening international collaboration in the research of Australia and, to a lesser degree, New Zealand, over the past 10 years. The United States continues to be the biggest contributor to Australian and New Zealand publications, but of special interest is a sizable increase of Australia's collaboration with China.

The study, Global Research Report: Australia and New Zealand, found that collaboration within the Asia-Pacific region is notably changing. Though collaboration with Australia among some Asia-Pacific nations increased, and collaboration with China doubled (rising from 2.3 percent to 4.4 percent of all Australian outputs), collaboration with Japan remained unchanged.

Key findings state that computer science in one area where Australia has increased its output, and has also grown in the volume of outputs in New Zealand, consistent with the countries' research priorities and technology agendas.

The study is part of the Global Research Report series from Thomson Reuters that illustrates the changing landscape and dynamics of scientific research around the world.
