The article discusses ways of creating collaboration for research purposes. One of the most common points in creating a collaboration is taking the initiative to start an interaction. Volunteering ideas or observations, hard-to-find standard compounds, or ideal samples to prove a new technique have all been the impetus of several studies and of the beginnings of collaborations. Many highly interesting collaborations happen when the exchanges of ideas cross disciplinary boundaries. When a technique is first applied to another discipline, rapid discoveries occur. Ideas and proposals from other researchers should be met with interest and curiosity. Finally, open communications that delineate roles, expectation, and schedules always help. Each collaborator brings individual talents and knowledge that must be meshed into the framework of a working team.
