Abstract

Globalization, and the internationalization of universities, brings both opportunities and dilemmas for university researchers in general, and for researchers in the Educational Sciences in particular. International collaboration has been shown to have a positive effect on the productivity of researchers in terms of the number of publications authored and co-authored, the impact of their research in terms of number of citations, and their research quality in terms of the ranking of the journals of publication. At the same time, international research focuses might not match with national priorities and trends in the researchers’ own countries, and the need for non-native speakers of English to write in English is well-recognized as very demanding. In this paper I review the evidence on research collaboration internationally, and in medium-sized countries such as Japan, and examine the internalization of research in the Educational Sciences in particular. I then explore some strategies for Education researchers, and their scholarly organizations, to globalize their research. I conclude by returning to the benefits and dilemmas, both for researchers and for scholarly organizations in the Educational Sciences, of globalizing academic research.
