Four years of global scientific collaboration, mapped

This graphic, created by by Olivier H. Beauchesne and Scimago Lab with data from Scopus, maps scientific collaboration on papers by academic researchers around the world.

The United State and Western Europe show up brightly, as does India, eastern China, South Korea and Japan. Beauchesne observes that link between language groups, as well as countries and their old colonies – France and parts of Africa, for example — are obvious.
