Opportunities to upgrade the scientific disciplines space
AbstractResearch resources in a given scientific domain may spill over into other close scientific disciplines, thereby improving performance. Using bibliometric data from the SCImago database drawn from a sample of 174 countries, we implement a measure of proximity-based on revealed comparative advantage (RCA) as a specialization or activity index. Our estimates show that proximity between disciplines positively and significantly related to the publication growth rate.
