Deliverable D7.1 Report on the analysis of researchers' mobility and the effects of researchers' mobility on research

This report summarizes the literature on mobility and careers and defines the different mobility measures. It then describes the data sources used for measuring mobility and assesses the different methodologies used for collecting and coding the data. Finally, it offers an analysis of mobility and describes different mobility patterns and their interactions.

Deliverable D7.2 Report on the effects of researchers' mobility in terms of scientific productivity

The theoretical framework on why we expect a positive effect of mobility on performance is focussed on expected increases in human and social capital as well as on job matching theory. We hypothesise that only a move to an institution of higher quality/reputation will be associated with a medium term increase in productivity. Different indicators for scientific performance are debated. Further, we introduce a discussion on rankings to measure up and downward mobility. Then we present five case studies of the effect of mobility on performance. They shows result of the 16 country Glob-Sci survey and country studies on the UK, US and Japan.

Deliverable D7.3 Report on the in-depth analysis of the effects of researchers' mobility on the development of disciplinary fields

This report summarizes the literature on thematic mobility in research. It defines the measure for thematic mobility and provides an overview over disciplinary developments in the UK. It uses visualisation tools developed during the project to represent subject trajectories.
