Summary

Experts in science policy, Barry Bozeman and Jan Youtie have long studied various aspects of scientific collaboration. After years of focusing on primary research, their new book, The Strength in Numbers, aims to translate their findings for those who are actually doing scientific research. Reading less like an academic article and more like a "how to" guide, it introduces data and anecdotes about the challenges experienced by individuals working in science teams.
