Abstract: Using the method of scietometric and social network analysis, and taking the field of cell biology as an example, this paper selects the scientific research papers published by Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) and German Max Planck Institute (MPG) as sample data, and compares the structure, characteristics and development trend of international network of science and technology cooperation of CAS and MPG in the field of cell biology. Results show that CAS shows a faster growth trend in the field of cell biology. In terms of the range of international science and technology cooperation, the range of MPG's cooperation with other countries is wider than that of CAS. CAS is superior to MPG in terms of the closeness of the cooperation. The results of regression analysis show that there is a positive correlation between the intensity of international research collaboration and the research performance of researchers. The above conclusions have the implications for the international science and technology collaboration policy making and pracitices.
