Les villes de la science dans le monde

Abstract : The analysis of the Web of Science (SCI-Expanded) for cities throughout the globe produces a highly concentrated «map» of science. Less than a thousand cities produce over 95% of all scientific articles, despite a notable trend towards deconcentration. Systematic mapping shows the variety of forms in spatial organization found in each country. By focusing on the co-authorship of articles, it is clear that local and national contexts remain extremely important in scientific collaboration, despite the visible development of international collaborations.
