Cui Prodest? Reciprocity of collaboration measured by Russian Index of Science Citation

by   Vladimir Pislyakov, et al.

Scientific collaboration is often not perfectly reciprocal. Scientifically strong countries/institutions/laboratories may help their less prominent partners with leading scholars, or finance, or other resources. What is interesting in such type of collaboration is that (1) it may be measured by bibliometrics and (2) it may shed more light on the scholarly level of both collaborating organizations themselves. In this sense measuring institutions in collaboration sometimes may tell more than attempts to assess them as stand-alone organizations. Evaluation of collaborative patterns was explained in detail, for example, by Glanzel (2001; 2003). Here we combine these methods with a new one, made available by separating 'the best' journals from 'others' on the same platform of Russian Index of Science Citation (RISC). Such sub-universes of journals from 'different leagues' provide additional methods to study how collaboration influences the quality of papers published by organizations.
