Abstract
It is generally accepted that scientific work and scientific cooperation are sensitive to their societal and economic environment. But how strong are they affected by the outbreak of social, economic or ethnic crises? In a recent paper we have considered the temporal evolution of scientific cooperation between the successor republics of the former Yugoslavia. Furthermore we have analysed how they were affected by the civil wars and social crises, which took place in that region during the last 20 years. In the present contribution we extend and deepen our previous work by applying methods from network-analysis and a gravity model to the internal and external cooperation network of the republics of former Yugoslavia.
