Zhi-hong Song, Shi Chen, Dong-mei Lee


Taking the Chinese inland scholars’ co-authorships in the 10 leading international academic journals in the field of technological innovation management from 1990 to 2016 as the sample, the article empirically investigates factors which influence Chinese inland scholars’ propensity towards international collaboration with Logistic regression model. The empirical results show that Chinese inland scholars who have overseas education background show higher propensity towards international collaboration. However, both the overseas academic exchange experience and academic experience have no significant impacts on the propensity towards international collaboration.
