Abstract This article investigates the taken-for-granted notion of scientific mobility as fundamentally “global.” We use self- reported biographical profile data of over a hundred thousand scientists from ORCID (Open Researcher and Contributor ID) who received a Ph.D. between the 1980s and 2010s. These data are advantageous over data commonly used to trace scientific mobility like surveys and disambiguated bibliometric data, as ORCID data offer both publication histories and a curriculum vitae i...

In this era of interdisciplinary science, many scientific achievements, such as artificial intelligence (AI), have brought dramatic revolutions to human society. The increasing availability of digital data on scholarly outputs offers unprecedented opportunities to explore science of science (SciSci). Despite many significant works have been done on SciSci, substantial disciplinary differences in different domains make some insights inadequate within particular fields. One thing standing out is t...

The relationship between the international mobility of academic researchers and social capital is complex. On the one hand, the literature suggests that social capital facilitates the international mobility of academics which, in turn, promotes the accumulation of international social capital, enhances research productivity, and advances careers. On the other hand, international mobility can isolate researchers from the national social capital in their origin countries. In this paper, I present ...

Trauma is associated with the appearance of the concept of ‘accident’ as a social and legal entity, as well as with the successive discoveries of surgery, psychiatrics, and psychoanalysis. Today, e...

In domestic and foreign scientists’ research the scienti c potential is investigated through a series of economic indicators, but social and cultural aspects are not revealed. Scientists’ interest focuses primarily on the resource component of the scienti c potential expressed through quantitative indexes (funding of science, number of academic staff involved in economics, the volume of scienti c & technical work, etc.). The analyses of the current scienti c literature have found that the co...

The policy debate around researchers’ geographic mobility has been moving away from a theorized zero-sum game in which countries can be winners (“brain gain”) or losers (“brain drain”), and toward the concept of “brain circulation,” which implies that researchers move in and out of countries and everyone benefits. Quantifying trends in researchers’ movements is key to understanding the drivers of the mobility of talent, as well as the implications of these patterns for the global system of scien...
