Clearly, researchers collaborate for a variety of intellectual and social reasons: to get help, to combine expertise, to gain credibility, or to create a community. No one model will hold for all cases. Similarly, no one simplistic set of rules to guide scientific conduct and guarantee scientific integrity will suffice either. Instead, those prescribing professional behavior must recognize the various types and levels of collaboration, the reasons for the collaboration, and the implications of each case.
