Study finds: Migrating researchers are cited the most

Researchers who are on the move are cited on average 40% more than those who aren’t, according to an analysis published in Nature on 4 October.

Circulation networks that map the number and flow of researchers reveal the importance of the United States, United Kingdom, France, Canada and Germany as prominent nodes in the global scientific network.

The take-home messages from the study: science is a global activity and scientists perform better, when they move.
