English abstract

This study shows visual displays of scientific information from which different aspects of international collaboration may be analyzed. The first aim is to identify the degree of “internationality” of research by highlighting fluxes of knowledge in the form of publications. This allows us, in turn, to identify the main geographical axes, to show the relationships of the analyzed domains with other countries, discovering the relative strength of these relations, and to see how they might affect the visibility of the work on the virtual horizon. Two final applications are foreseen: the detection of significant differences that can help to characterize the publishing patterns of a given geographical domain or system of knowledge interchange, and the generation of visualizations that act as interfaces for domain analysis in general.
