Focusing on a multi-year research program on the dynamics and effectiveness of academic researchers' research collaborations, the presentation draws from interview and survey data to consider such topics as these:
- differences between men's and women's approaches to choosing and working with collaborators;
- strategies and motives for collaboration;
- "cosmopolitan" vs. "local" collaborations;
- reasons for bad or "nightmare" collaborations and approaches researchers use to dealing with severe problems.
A general consideration is the extent to which collaboration enhances scientific productivity. The presentation concludes with a few observations on ways in which researchers can manage research collaborations so as to improve effectiveness and minimize the likelihood of "nightmare" collaborations.
