Abstract

The objective of our paper is to explore the extent to which the research collaborations could be an impact on the scientific performance of academic institutions. The analysis is based on data for 241 universities in Russia for 2015-2016 obtained from different sources: Interfax (privately-held independent major news agency in Russia) National Ranking of Universities; Monitoring of efficiency of activity of educational organizations of higher education (launched by Information-computing Centre of Ministry of Education and Science of the Russian Federation); Russian Science Citation Index (largest Russian information and analytical portal in science, technology, medicine and education and electronic library of scientific publications with 28 mlns of documents). In order to measure university performance in Russia, we choose the publications citations. To this end, we develop a non-overlapping generations model to evidence the theoretical idea of research externalities between academic institutions. Moreover, we implement different empirical models to test for the effect of external scientific collaborations on the institutional research quality by Federal District and Scientific Field. The findings evidence a positive effect of co-authoring process.
