AbstractIn recent decades there has been an enormous growth of scientific collaboration across national borders. The number of internationally coauthored scientific articles has grown at an average of 14 percent per year. Networking is now an important means of enhancing scientific quality. In an econometric study of the patterns of interaction the paper shows that scientific interaction follows the gravity model with size of collaborating scientific environments, transportation efforts, language similarity and political collaboration institutions, shaping the spatial pattern of scientific collaboration.
