Research Collaborations

Geographical heat map of USF international co-publication 2015-2019

As the global challenges facing our community grow increasingly tangible to our students, it is important to recognize the critical nature of global engagement for both researchers and institutions. The arts and sciences are global endeavors and international research collaboration is necessary for accelerating scientific growth and advancement. The most influential research is conducted by groups of researchers who, among other characteristics, are located around the world. Publications with co-authors from more than one country generate higher impact science and discovery, and the international co-publications of USF-affiliated authors result in consistently higher impact and citation scores than domestic publications. Explore the sections below to see who USF publishes with, where, and in which subject areas.
