Exploring the Connected Culture of Collaboration - a new #OverleafReport
By John Hammersley
Real-time collaboration network visualization by Ian Calvert

I'm delighted to announce that today, Overleaf has released a new report which takes an in-depth look at active collaborative research patterns. Rather than examining post-published collaboration patterns, “The Connected Culture of Collaboration” explores how real-time information on collaboration can provide insights in collaboration patterns on national, state and institution-level scales.

Supported and contributed to by Digital Science, the report features a number of thought leadership pieces and includes a foreword from Laurel Haak, Executive Director, ORCID. The report focuses on the varying aspects of collaboration: how collaboration is valued in science, the role of university libraries in research communication, and how the growth of open access facilitates collaboration.
