The Strength in Numbers : The New Science of Team Science Paperback / softback


Why collaborations in STEM fields succeed or fail and how to ensure successOnce upon a time, it was the lone scientist who achieved brilliant breakthroughs.

No longer. Today, science is done in teams of as many as hundreds of researchers who may be scattered across continents.

These collaborations can be powerful, but they also demand new ways of thinking.

The Strength in Numbers illuminates the nascent science of team science by synthesizing the results of the most far-reaching study to date on collaboration among university scientists.

Drawing on a national survey with responses from researchers at more than one hundred universities, archival data, and extensive interviews with scientists and engineers in over a dozen STEM disciplines, Barry Bozeman and Jan Youtie establish a framework for characterizing different collaborations and their outcomes, and lay out what they have found to be the gold-standard approach: consultative collaboration management.

The Strength in Numbers is an indispensable guide for scientists interested in maximizing collaborative success.
