Abstract

Based on the articles published by Chinese inland scholars in 35 SCI and SSCI journals in the field of information science, the paper examines the impact of the network positions, similarities and prior collaboration experiences of core authors on the evolution of international co-authorship networks. The empirical results show that, (1) central positions of authors in co-authorship networks may lead to the establishment co-authorships; (2) The similarities and prior collaboration experiences may also lead to the formation of co-authorships. Specifically, authors within the same affiliations are more likely to establish co-authorships, and prior collaboration experiences will lead to the continuation co-authorship.
