Collaborative and multi-disciplinary research is increasingly encouraged in research, however increased collaboration also raises ethical considerations. This chapter discusses various types of collaborative research, strengths and potential problems in collaboration, and guidelines for enhancing collaborative relationships. It addresses such concerns as differing motivations, expectations and work styles, power differentials, and disciplinary norms and cultures that can create difficulties within collaborative relationships. There is also a discussion of university policies and responsibilities related to collaborative research arrangements when there is extramural funding involved or the potential for patenting or copyrighting new materials/products that are developed. A checklist of items that should be considered and discussed when entering into collaborative relationships is included.
