Abstract: This paper suggests that a hyperlink can be employed as a form of collaborative communication network connecting individual researchers and research groups and expanding their collaboration relations by making possible easy and direct online contact among people or groups anywhere in the world. This paper describes the structure of academic hyperlinks embedded in universities¡¯ Web sites hosted at the 10 Asian countries and further, examines the association between the structure of the hyperlink network and collaborative communication pattern among those countries based on their frequency of co-authoring articles. This research found that China and Japan are preferred as the number one collaborator by other Asian countries. Compared to the co-authorship network, hyperlink network showed that universities¡¯ Web sites owned by China did not occupy the most central positions in the network. Instead, Japan and South Korea formed the most central country group. The number of inter-hyperlinks among universities¡¯ Web sites was significantly correlated with the frequency of co-authored articles across the 10 countries.
