Collaborate on Research: Tools for Collaboration

The Process of Collaboration

Collaboration is about setting and communicating expectations. It is best to set such expectations up front rather than trying to set them after months of hard work and frustration.

  • Many researchers create a document to share and agree upon the expectations for the research project.
  • These agreements cover such concepts as how and how frequently collaborators will communicate and/or meet, where and how data and shared documents will be stored, what deadlines will be met, and more.
