The world science scenario has observed, in recent years, an important
transformation. With the advent of fairly complete publication databases and the
improvement of the Internet a number of world university rankings were created,
with a clear bias towards research universities. Also, a new field of scientometrics
has been developed, and recent studies have clearly demonstrated that the impact
of a publication increases if it is written by authors of more than one country. A
general overview of the research collaboration landscape is presented, considering
the advantages and problems of international cooperation and the role of research
universities. In particular, the case of Ibero-America is explained, with a detailed
focus on Brazil. Some interesting practices that have been introduced to improve
the degree of internationalization of Brazilian science are shown and discussed.
