Scientific Collaboration, Research Funding, and Novelty in Scientific Knowledge

February 16, 2024 9:36 am Published by

In this project the focus is on publications’ novelty as an indicator of scientific advancement with regard to collaboration and funding patterns. First, we investigate the relationship between collaborations and novelty in publications. Novelty in scientific publications often incorporates new ideas and opportunities from interdisciplinarity across heterogenous research groups to solve practical problems. Interdisciplinarity, which results from scientific collaboration, is believed to bring out new research outputs, and thus it is reasonable to expect some correlations between collaboration and novelty measures. To the best of our knowledge, however, only few studies have examined the relationship between scientific collaborations and novelty. Specifically, we examine collaborations at the country and various sub-national, i.e. regional, as well as the institutional levels. We measure novelty of articles with keywords’ information. Finally, we evaluate the role of funding in research novelty.
