1. Robichau, Robbie. "To Collaborate or Not to Collaborate: A Multi-theoretical Explanation for Collaboration among Child Welfare Nonprofits" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ARNOVA Annual Conference, Marriott Hartford Downtown, Hartford, CT, Nov 21, 2013 <Not Available>. 2019-04-25 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p670620_index.html>

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.

Abstract: The Public Relations Campaigns course requires complex coordination and collaboration among members of the student team, the professor, and the campaign client. This presentation isolates some of the major tasks in a typical campaigns course and makes specific recommendations for free online social media that can support and enable collaboration. The use of social media for collaboration is likely to benefit students beyond the scope of the specific course. Several calls have been made at public relations conferences such as UGA Connect to integrate social media seamlessly in public relations courses, in order to help students learn how to use social media in professional settings. Public relations faculty have begun teaching students to use social media for external communication with publics, and it is time to extend that lesson to using social media inside the workplace to optimize tasks that require cooperation and collaboration. The presentation will discuss how online tools such as Google Wave, blogs, social bookmarking, shared notebooks and shared calendars can be taught and used in the public relations campaigns course, to support collaboration in the class and prepare students for the workplace.
