Despite substantial investments in R&D, Japanese research output is not yielding the returns expected. In addition to having to dealing with a hierarchical educational system, Japanese researchers also lack opportunities and platforms for external collaboration. In the long run, international collaboration may hold the key to Japan's success in research.
Japan's investment in R&D is high. Despite this, Japanese research output is diminishing. Why is this happening? A hierarchical educational system, and lack opportunities and platforms for external collaboration are among the reasons for this decline. International collaboration will play a crucial role in helping Japan increase the quality ad quantity of its research output.
