Co-authorships are now analysed against the background of European networking. It might be assumed that the context of transnational project partnerships, networks and conferences also promotes transnational teamwork in publishing. The figure above takes up the analysis of authorships introduced in the previous figure (17), by breaking down the groups of co-authors according to country composition. 

Altogether, the teams of co-authors from different countries are small in number, and also small in comparison to the total sample of authors (see data given in figure 17). We may conclude, in general, that the overall progress of transnational networking (project partnerships, networks, conferences), in which these authors are involved, does not seem to be matched by a high level of transnational co-authorships. Nevertheless, some differences between the three publishing media are noticable:

While only a small proportion of co-authorships in JVET and the ECER/ VETNET proceedings are transnational, the corresponding proportion of CEDRA co-authorships is much bigger. CEDRA also exceeds the two other groups in the proportion of teams involving persons from more than two different countries. This is certainly an outcome of the deliberate transnational approach followed in CEDRA activities and, more specifically, in producing the joint studies. These studies not only include teams of editors and of authors for individual articles (represented in the figure above), but also form larger groups of contributors (teams or individuals), already presented as CEDRA co-authorship network (figure 11).
