Bennett L, Gadlin H, Levine-Finley S. Collaboration and Team Science: A Field Guide. 2010;April 2010.
Over the last decade, there has been a surge of interest and investment in multi- and interdisciplinary team science programs from public agencies and private organizations alike. Today it is widely accepted that “collaborations become necessary whenever researchers wish to take their research programs in new directions” (Macrina, 1995). As a result, innovations and advances that were not possible within one laboratory working in isolation are now emerging from collaborations and research teams that have harnessed techniques, approaches, and perspectives from multiple scientific disciplines and therapeutic areas. Team science has been described as a collaborative and often cross-disciplinary approach to scientific inquiry that draws researchers who otherwise work independently or as coinvestigators on smaller-scale projects into collaborative centers and groups.
