AbstractNational contributions to science are influenced by a number of factors, including economic capacity, national scientific priorities, science policy, and institutional settings and cultures. Nations do not have equal opportunities to access the global scientific market, and therefore, often seek out international partners with complementary resources and expertise. This study aims at investigating national collaboration strategies, with a focus on research leadership—measured through the corresponding authorship—and its relationship with scientific impact. Results show that countries with higher R&D investments are more scientifically independent, and confirm that international collaborations positively related to citation impact. However, leadership in international collaborations inversely related to a country share of international collaboration and there is a very little relationship between citation impact and international leadership. For instance, most countries—and particularly those that have fewer resources—have a higher scientific impact when they are not leading. This suggests that, despite increasing global participation in science, most international collaborations area symmetrical, and that the research system remains structured around a few dominate nations
