Sample text

In this section, the focus is on the development concerning internationalisation of Norwegian science based on bibliometric analyses. The development will be investigated at an overall national level, at the level of sectors, universities and university faculties in Norway. The basis for the bibliometric analyses is the National Citation Report (NCR) for Norway provided by Thomson ISI. This database contains bibliometric data on individual articles for Norway (that is, publications with at least one Norwegian author address), and data for the period 1981–2004 is analysed.

Worldwide, only 17 per cent of all publications are now internationally co-authored (National Science Board 2002). Nevertheless, several countries have been shown to have a higher proportion of internationally coauthored papers than Norway. In a study by Gl¨anzel (2001), based on 1995/96 data, Norway ranks twentieth of a total of fifty nations. Although most of the countries with a higher proportion international co-authorship are rather small scientific nations, there are a few other West-European countries ahead of Norway, among these Portugal, Switzerland, Belgium, and Denmark.

Generally, nations with large scientific communities have far more collaborative articles than smaller countries (Luukkonen et al. g. Luukkonen et al. 1992; National Science Board 2002). Hence, international collaboration is relatively more important in smaller countries. This is probably a consequence of researchers from small countries often having to look abroad for colleagues and partners within their own speciality. Small scientific budgets, the need for cost-sharing, and access to facilities abroad are other reasons.
