Abstract  On the basis of the measured frequency distribution of China's inter-regional co-authored papers covered by 10 years' data of 150 economic journals in CNKI database, this paper shows the pattern of China's Inter-Regional Research Collaboration(IRRC) by using statistical softwares, such as SPSS and GeoDa. The results fall into three groups. Firstly, regional scientific productivity affects the collaborative preference. Secondly, geographic distance is an important factor determining the pattern of IRRC. Thirdly, regional collaboration strength increases as the regional productivity increases, and as the distance between two regions decreases.
Key wordsResearch collaboration      Regional tendency      Scientific productivity      Geographic distance
