International Collaborations

% International Collaborations

The International collaborations indicator counts papers that contain one or more international co-authors. On InCites, the % of International Collaborations is an indication of an institution’s or author’s ability to attract international collaborations using the data from Web of Science. The formulation of the score is the number of International Collaborations for an entity divided by the total number of documents for the same entity represented as a percentage.
