Research collaboration is the key to build and maintain a successful research career in today’s globalized world. Interdisciplinary, inter-organizational, and international collaborations facilitate research advancement by bringing together a unique mix of talents, resources, cultures, and scientific knowledge. However, most young researchers find it immensely challenging to establish good collaborations. Researchers need to find compatible collaborators, maintain the existing collaborations, and recognize opportunities to work with them.
