Migration of scholars is a major driver of innovation and of diffusion of knowledge. We leverage bibliometric data, indexed by Scopus (for over 36 million journal articles and reviews) to develop a novel and global database of scholarly migration (1998-2017), where migration events are inferred from changes in authors’ institutional affiliations over time. In this talk, I will present how we developed the longitudinal database on internal and international movements of scholars, offer descriptive statistics for trends over time, as well as show initial results from our statistical analyses to identify and quantify drivers of geographic mobility of talent.
