Science is increasingly defined by multidimensional collaborative networks. Despite the unprecedented growth of scientific collaboration around the globe - the collaborative turn - geography still matters for the cognitive enterprise. This book explores how geography conditions scientific collaboration and how collaboration affects the spatiality of science. This book offers a complex analysis of the spatial aspects of scientific collaboration, addressing the topic at a number of levels: individual, organizational, urban, regional, national, and international. Spatial patterns of scientific collaboration are analysed along with their determinants and consequences. By combining a vast array of approaches, concepts, and methodologies, the volume offers a comprehensive theoretical framework for the geography of scientific collaboration. The examples of scientific collaboration policy discussed in the book are taken from the European Union, the United States, and China. Through a number of case studies the authors analyse the background, development and evaluation of these policies. This book will be of interest to researchers in diverse disciplines such as regional studies, scientometrics, R&D policy, socio-economic geography and network analysis. It will also be of interest to policymakers, and to managers of research organisations.

"The book is authored by scholars in economics and geography, but the book will be of interest to students and scholars in other disciplines as well. While the book makes only a few references to the philosophical literature on collaboration in science, philosophers of science in practice are likely to find the book enlightening. Philosophers will perhaps be particularly interested in the quantitative data on international collaboration reported in Chapter 4 and the extensive presentation in Chapter 6 of scientific collaboration policies in the USA, the EU, and China." -Line Edslev Andersen, Metascience
