Abstract: Mediators of scientific knowledge are currently large scientific citation databases and platforms
build upon them as they have conquered the role of the librarians in the digital environment. Direct
utilization of bibliographic data for analysis of international academic mobility helps to gain insight
into behavior of high impact international scholars. Geographic structure of global academia
facilitates exploration of the prospect that Gravity and Radiation models can be complements to
each other. In addition, author challenges role of university rankings as a principal driver of
decision-making process for academic mobility.
