Aarhus University Seal / Aarhus Universitets segl


Research Collaboration

Researchers at Aarhus University have a long and strong tradition for research collaboration and co-publishing and are eager to engage in international research collaboration to the benefit of all involved.

Danish researchers are world champions in writing highly cited academic articles. According to Times Higher Education Supplement's survey of the most-cited nations Denmark ranks as no. 1. However, research excellence is not all. The overall job satisfaction depends upon more factors; social as well as cultural. In this respect Aarhus University has a lot to offer. According to Nature Magazine's International Career Survey, Denmark ranks as the one most likely to provide its scientists with an excellent all-round experience.

Looking at ranking evaluations you will see that universities that engage in collaborative research rank higher than those who do not. You will also notice that co-authored articles are quoted more frequently than articles with only one author. However, research collaboration is costly and potentially difficult because of language barriers, geographical distance and cultural challenges.
