Abstract: Collaboration among nonprofits has become a necessity for survival and most research to date focuses on cross-sector collaboration. By taking a multi-theoretical approach, this research adds to the literature on intra-agency collaboration by using a sociological perspective. Survey data from child welfare nonprofits is used to conduct an Ordinary Least Square regression to test how different theories explain collaboration. Results show that a turbulent environment, identifying with normative commitments of the nonprofit sector, and experiencing positive service outcomes from past collaborations increases intra-agency collaboration while having a business board member and experiencing positive administrative outcomes from past collaboration reduces collaboration.

Abstract: Knowledge production is an increasingly collaborative endeavor. Research on co-authorship, for instance, shows that the number of coauthored papers is rising in every disciplinary field (Wuchty, Jones and Uzzi 2007). And while classic laboratory studies inform us about epistemic cultures (Knorr Cetina 1999) and the creation of facts (Latour and Woolgar 1979), not enough is known about how “collaboration” is perceived and managed by scientists. This paper explores the dynamics of collaborative knowledge production by focusing on researchers in the Chemical Sciences in two settings: an academic Chemistry lab, and a research group employing chemical analysis in a biotechnology company. The data come from semi-structured interviews and observations at lab meetings. In this project, the investigators do not define collaboration a priori, but instead allow interlocutors to describe their experiences with collaboration and develop their own working definitions. In the interviews, collaboration appears as a fairly static category, both as a problem (how to overcome the difficulties in collaboration, or barriers to collaboration) and as an approach (some scientists are more collaborative than others). In the ethnographic observation, collaboration is more dynamic. The chemical scientists perform collaboration in meetings in ways that seem to fall along a spectrum of “more” and “less” intense collaboration, as evidenced by differences in language, tone, and non-verbal behavior. Collaboration is sometimes contracting and sometimes expanding (such as in who is included in collaboration). Gendered organization and ethical issues, broadly construed, are found to play a role in this contraction and expansion of collaboration in the two settings.
