Description

Global Mobility of Research Scientists: The Economics of Who Goes Where and Why brings together information on how the localization and mobility of academic researchers contributes to the production of knowledge.

The text answers several questions, including "what characterizes nationally and internationally mobile researchers?" and "what are the individual and social implications of increased mobility of research scientists?"

Eight independent, but coordinated chapters address these and other questions, drawing on a set of newly developed databases covering 30 countries, including the US, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, and China, among others.

Review Text

"The international mobility of scientists and innovators fundamentally shapes our world, but measurement is always difficult. This book fills that gap and pushes forward our understanding." -- William Kerr, Harvard Business School

"This is an incredible contribution about researchers on the move. The book provides new theoretical perspectives and quantitative empirical evidence about the motives and implications of researchers' mobility in a contrasting international perspective. This book is a must for scientists, politicians and university administrations interested in attracting talents from all over the world." -- Javier Revilla Diez, University of Cologne

"The timely volume provides a valuable global perspective on the phenomenon of scientific mobility. It appears destined to be a key resource for both scholars and policymakers interested in understanding the movement of scientists around the world and the scientific and economic implications of this mobility." -- Aaron Levine, Georgia Institute of Technology
