Nature Studies the Necessity of Collaboration Skills in Research

Springer Nature shared that a Nature Research survey of 600-plus “senior academics, mid-tier researchers and postgraduate students in the physical, natural and social sciences has revealed that many feel they do not have the skills needed for successful collaborative research projects. Only 20 percent of participants said that they had accessed training on collaboration through their institution or externally. At the same time, collaborative research is becoming increasingly common in almost every discipline.”

“One step we can take to ensure that academics are equipped for collaborative research is to offer suitable training on the skills collaboration requires, like teamwork, project and people management, communication across cultures and disciplines, big data management, administrative and negotiation skills,” says Victoria Pavry, head of publishing, researcher, and conference services at Springer Nature.

A Nature Masterclass, Effective Collaboration in Research, “has been developed based on these survey results. The three-part online course has been designed with busy researchers in mind and is self-paced, bite-sized, and on demand.”
