Brenda Happell discusses how to ensure everyone involved in a research project, including the researchers, is well treated
Collaborative research provides numerous benefits, such as the contribution of multiple perspectives and a more rounded approach to the research question. This paper considers and discusses the rights of individuals involved in collaborative research and the protections necessary should the team change because of factors such as long term illness or conflict between team members. The concept of capacity is discussed as a way to determine the effect of changed individual circumstances on membership of a research team.
