Abstract

Star scientists not only create an academic impact, but also induce a social impact such as creating new businesses through high-quality research outcomes. In comparison with the US, star scientists in Japan receive relatively less attention. This paper selects star scientists in Japan via Clarivate's list of High Cited Researchers and analyzes the characteristics of them connecting with J-global. We found that star scientists tend to be concentrated in specific universities/institutes in Japan. There are a few potential explanations. First, researchers in Japan tend to perform collaborative research within universities or institutes. Second, labor mobility is low within Japanese universities. Third, apprenticeship relations in Japan often last for a lifetime.
