According to the website of Hong Kongs South China Morning Post on July 23, a research team from the United States and Australia studied 10000 papers on coronavirus published between the beginning of 2018 and April 2020. In the two years to the end of 2019, 3.6% of the papers involved cooperation between Chinese and American scientists, while in the first four months of this year, the number rose to 4.9%.
The results were published in the Journal of Public Library of science.
The findings come as U.S. research projects involving Chinese partners or funds are facing more stringent scrutiny, and Washington has been making it more difficult for Chinese researchers and students to obtain a visa to the United States, the report said.
Caroline Wagner, associate professor of international affairs at Ohio State University, CO authored the paper with researcher John Haupt. Wagner said that in recent decades, Sino US cooperation has grown explosively.
Today, China is the United States largest international partner in scientific research, and this trend has continued during the new outbreak, she said.
We found that US China cooperation has been strengthened. They actually expanded their cooperation. They work more closely than ever before.
Wagner said she was not too worried about the possible impact of political tensions between the two countries, because the scientific community operates differently from the political community.
Political tensions will continue But science and culture is very much about facts and prestige.
Another study by researchers from the school of education at the University of Arizona also found close ties between Chinese and American scientists in the study of the new coronavirus, the report said.
In view of the increasing tension between China and the United States, especially since the outbreak of the new coronation epidemic, we believe that the cooperation between the United States and China will be reduced, said Jane Lee, a professor at the University of Arizona. But the good news is that its just the opposite.
