Abstract

Scientific discoveries are the result of global collaboration and often the multidisciplinary nature of collaborations. A core element of these successful collaborations will materialise through a researcher's mobility in location and disciplinary focus. Researchers experience numerous opportunities to practice locational mobility throughout their careers as well as by conducting multidisciplinary research. Both changes have short- and long-term impacts on individual researchers and science, technology, and innovation systems that have an immediate interest for the public and private research and development funding mechanisms. With the advancement in data science tools and increasing computational capacities, we can use bibliometric data for calculating a researcher's mobility on location and a disciplinary focus over time. We looked at Finland as a case, and by incorporating analytical procedures, the processed data is capable of delivering insights on researcher mobility between cities over time as well as disciplinary change over time. This dataset can reveal hidden dynamics in the scholar's career progress. If combined with funding information and mission-oriented policies, the dataset can evaluate the long-lasting effect of instruments in mobilising researchers, steering research agendas, and consequently the resulting impacts.
