Abstract: Collaboration patterns in science
A number of studies have shown that engaging in scientific teams has the potential of boosting the im- pact of the research results independently of the field.
However, the way scientists engage in such collaborations is affected by many factors including gender and funding. In this talk I will discuss how these two factors affect collaboration patterns using results derived form two studies: a gender study of scientists in top US universities in different fields of science and a study of top-performing scientists across continents and scientific fields.
