The positive impact of collaboration on academic performance is well documented. Hence the rise of “team science”, helping bridge specialties and focus efforts. Taking a similarly collaborative approach to dissemination of research can further increase reach and impact – helping researchers expand and transcend their networks, benefit from each others’ skills and capabilities, reduce time and effort by sharing tasks and providing incentives and recognition to encourage individual participation in support of group outreach and impact goals. We are currently undertaking research exploring attitudes towards collaborating for dissemination and impact; we propose to present highlights from the results, and outline proposed mechanisms for supporting and encouraging this more strategic approach to dissemination within the research community.
