Or in 'Team'

"There is no 'I' in research," says Benchfly's Alan Marnett. Researchers have become more and more inclined to collaborate with each other, and although speed is certainly one reason to collaborate, it's not the only one. "If we can understand what drives collaboration, it may be possible to help support and enable more of them in the future," Marnett says. In a Benchfly poll on collaboration, 75 percent of respondents said they work with others "to gain access to technical expertise," while 60 percent said they do it to complete the work faster, and 45 percent to increase "brainstorming" or "hypothesis generation" on a given project.
