Find Collaborators

For this task, explore a variety of additional tools that may help you identify potential research partners. Sign up for these tools and put your profile out there for others to find as well.

Why Does This Task Matter?

Finding other researchers for the purposes of collaboration has many advantages. Research collaboration often leads to co-authorship opportunities, research networking, and joint research projects. Some research projects may be too daunting to take on with your current available resources; collaboration can help!
