The international mobility of robotics researchers is quantitatively evaluated by analyzing biographical notes accompanying journal papers. Mobility patterns illustrate that the United States, Canada, and Singapore attract robotics researchers from abroad as IQ magnets. Canada can be considered as an alternative to the United States for hosting Iranian robotics researchers. The relationship between the number of authors and bachelor's degree holders categorizes countries as hosts or sources of researchers. The characteristics of active topics of robotics research in major countries are also mentioned.
