In this research, using the Bourdieusian conceptual framework of the sociology of science, we analyzed the career paths of 426 researchers in communication studies from the Global South. We investigated how academic capital collected in the Global North contributes to the international success of Global South authors, and the alternative ways in which Global South researchers raise their visibility. We found that it is almost impossible to become an internationally recognized scientist in communication research without Global North capital, and the network of international education is quite similar to the network of international collaboration. We also found that some more successful Global South regions were able to develop relatively autonomous international fields of forces.
