Abstract :


This chapter begins by reviewing key studies on collaboration in research to show both its importance in contemporary science and the need for understanding the structural characteristics of collaborations in order to derive lessons for the management of research. The second section addresses the inadequacy of a "project" focus in understanding the organization of research. The author proposes a new theoretical approach called the "knowledge value framework." The final section considers the implications of this framework for institutional strategies to increase competitiveness in scientific research via collaborative efforts.
