English abstract

The network of international co-authorship relations has been dominated by certain European nations and the USA, but this network is rapidly expanding at the global level. Between 40 and 50 countries appear in the center of the international network in 2011, and almost all (201) nations are nowadays involved in international collaboration. In this brief communication, we present both a global map with the functionality of a Google Map (zooming, etc.) and network maps based on normalized relations. These maps reveal complementary aspects of the network. International collaboration in the generation of knowledge claims (that is, the context of discovery) changes the structural layering of the sciences. Previously, validation was at the global level and discovery more dependent on local contexts. This changing relationship between the geographical and intellectual dimensions of the sciences also has implications for national science policies.

Spanish abstract

La red internacional de relaciones de coautoría ha estado dominada por algunos países europeos y los Estados Unidos, pero se está expandiendo rápidamente a nivel mundial. En 2011 aparecen en el centro de la red internacional entre 40 y 50 países, y casi todos (201) participan de la colaboración internacional. En esta breve comunicación se presenta tanto un mapa mundial con la funcionalidad de Google Map (zoom, etc.) como mapas de red con relaciones normalizadas que revelan aspectos complementarios. La colaboración internacional en la generación de conocimiento (es decir, el contexto de descubrimiento) es responsable de cambiar la estratificación estructural de las ciencias. Anteriormente era la validación la que estaba a nivel mundial, y el descubrimiento dependía más de los contextos locales. Este cambio en la relación entre las dimensiones geográficas e intelectuales de las ciencias también tiene implicaciones sobre las políticas científicas nacionales.
