The globalisation of research collaboration

K. Frenken, J. Hoekman, S. Hardeman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterAcademic


Despite the globalization of research in general, and of research collaboration in particular, peripheral regions have not become better integrated into the world social science system over the past two decades. This means that the Western dominance of social science remains a pertinent issue. Social science dominated by just a few regions runs the risk of diminishing intellectual novelty and excluding less favoured researchers from agenda-setting discourses on ‘issues of global relevance’.
