Title: The Science of Team Science (SciTS): A Beacon for 21st Century Scientific Collaboration
Lead Author: Börner, Katy
Abstract: Social, economic, technological, health, and environmental problems impacting our world are complex, but we are able to increasingly address them through scientific pursuit. The sophistication of these challenges necessitates cross-disciplinary engagement and collaboration, and the longer-term interaction of groups of investigatorsteam science (TS). The emerging field of the science of team science (SciTS; pronounced sights) encompasses conceptual and methodological strategies aimed at understanding and enhancing the processes and outcomes of collaborative, team-based research, and the evaluation of TS. Its principal units of analysis are research, training, and community-based team science initiatives. SciTS focuses on antecedent conditions, collaborative processes, and outcomes associated with initiatives rooted in TS, including scientific discoveries, educational outcomes, and translations of research findings into new practices, patents, products, technical advances, and policies. This white paper describes recent research progress in the study of TS via SciTS. It proposes a systems perspective that incorporates a mixed-methods approach to SciTS commensurate with the conceptual, methodological, and translational complexities addressed within the SciTS field. This theoretically grounded and practically useful framework is intended to integrate lines of SciTS research to facilitate the fields evolution as it addresses key TS challenges spanning macro, meso, and micro levels of analysis.
