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.

From 2018-2022,* USF had 7,693 international collaborations across 179 countries. This research was only 1/3 of all USF published articles, but it accounts for nearly 60% of all USF citations. 394 international institutions across 56 countries also funded this co-published research. Explore the sections below to see who USF publishes with, where, and in which subject areas.
