The MIT Press

This book reveals that modern scientific studies and research efforts are increasingly being carried out in a collaborative environment. It finds that several research papers are being co-authored by a number of scientists. Collaborative efforts are being observed in all scientific fields despite inherent differences between respective aims and objectives. Co-authored papers are becoming a trend in scientific research fields across the globe. Another indicator of such scientific collaboration involves an increase in multi-investigator grant proposals for many scientific research projects.

Keywords:   scientific studies, collaboration, scientists, research fields, research projects
