This chapter examines how collaboratories affect the performance and productivity of scientists from developing countries. It describes how scientists from these countries face significant challenges in practicing their trade. The chapter also examines how collaboratories have the potential to provide advantages for these scientists, helping them to overcome some of the challenges. It finds that scientists from developing countries lack resources such as well-equipped laboratories and research facilities for undertaking research projects in different fields. Collaboratories provide significant advantages for these scientists through easy access to instruments and data needed for undertaking research projects.

Keywords:   collaboratories, scientists, developing countries, resources, research facilities
