Studying research collaboration
Ritchie, Stephen M. (2007) Studying research collaboration. In Ritchie, Stephen M. (Ed.) Research collaboration: Relationships and praxis. Sense Publishers, Rotterdam, The Netherlands, pp. 1-11.
This introductory chapter contextualizes the book by referring to increasing trends and pressures for researchers to collaborate, distinguishing different forms of collaboration and styles of research into research collaboration. More importantly, it begins the challenge of theorizing research collaboration. By featuring an emphasis on solidarity and emotional energy, as well as considering particular dialectical approaches to understanding collaboration, this collection of contributions set it apart from other major publications on collaboration. The structure of the sections and sequence of the chapters are then described in the book overview near the end of the chapter

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
Citations counts from theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
