在第三章，我們簡潔的回顧中國大陸科技狀況及合作學術文章的情形。在此，我們採用兩個資料庫: 中國科技統計年鑒和科學引證索引(the Statistical Yearbook on Science and Technology in China, and the Science Citation Index Expanded) 來觀察中國大陸學術文章合作的狀況。以中國科技統計年鑑，我們探討高等教育研究經費的支出和全職研究人員的數量。再則，透過SCI資料庫，我們觀察在中國大陸學術文章合作的情況。
文章的品質及其與學術合作的相關性之探討呈現在第五章。 這一章節最主要的目的是要探討大陸省份文章的品質和學術合作之間的關係。 就實證結果，我們發現省份有比較高的學術合作比例將享有比較高的知識外溢效果，結果促進文章的品質之提升。我們更發現國際間學術文章的合作更能創造出更高品質的文章。此外，我們還發現研究人員密度、知識庫和研究支出對文章的品質都有顯著正向的影響。
This study focuses on scholarly collaborations. It is well known that scholarly collaborations increase research productivity in term of published articles, and improve quality of articles. There has been a significant increase in international science and technology (S&T) cooperation over recent decades. Moreover, the rate of scholarly collaborated papers has an increasing time trend. This study notes that collaboration knowledge networking and co-authorship have affected regional knowledge productivity and publications quality.
Literature review is presented in chapter two of this study. It has three subsections: collaboration in publication, collaboration on productivity, and quality of publication. It is noted that the number of scholarly collaboration in published papers have increased dramatically since the Second World War. Scholarly collaborations have increased in time trend in any countries. Scholarly collaboration is conducive to productivity of publication. Finally, scholarly collaboration improves quality of publication.
In chapter three, we take a brief review of S&T situation, and co-authorship in China. Here, we use two databases (the Statistical Yearbook on Science and Technology in China, and the Science Citation Index Expanded) to overview co-authorship in China. We investigate the research expenditure and the number of full-time researchers in high education by using The Statistical Yearbook on Science and Technology. Furthermore, the co-authorship and publications of SCI databases in China is investigated.
In chapter four, we focus on the relationship between scholarly collaboration (co-authorship) and publications and take the published articles in China as a case study. Due to our empirical evidences, the regions with higher relation networks enjoy higher knowledge productivity in terms of published articles. As main findings, the greater the number of co-authored articles that a region has, the greater the number of publications a region has.
The quality of publications and its relation to collaboration is presented in chapter five. The main purpose of this chapter is to investigate the relationships that exist between regional publication quality levels and scholarly collaborations in China. We find that the regions with higher rate of co-authorship enjoy higher degree of knowledge spillover in terms of better quality of published articles. Especially, we find that an increase in the frequency of international co-authorship results in higher quality of articles. Furthermore, we also find that researcher intensity, knowledge base and physical capital have positive significant impacts on the quality of articles.
To sum up, through scholarly collaborations, scholar can enjoy knowledge spillover in order to improve his/her research skills by exchange tacit knowledge. Using China’s data to test our hypotheses, we find that scholarly collaboration has a positive impact on research productivity and quality of articles.
