The International Flow of Researchers

The Global Brain Trade

This is an interesting graph, but I would probably have preferred a display in which the x axis was the inflow of researchers, the y axis the outflow of researchers, and a circle surrounding the point for a nation, the size of which was proportional to the total  number of researchers in the country.

Korea stands out as having essentially no importation of researchers, Japan as having relatively little immigration or emigration.
