    In this PDW, we draw from a variety of perspectives in organizational behavior to learn how we can successfully manage academic collaborations for co-authoring research publications. The primary goals of this PDW are to (1) enhance attendees' awareness of common issues and themes in research teams, and (2) derive practical strategies they can use after the PDW to increase their success and well-being in academic collaborations. The PDW will commence with a keynote from Dr. John Mathieu, highlighting how team science informs our understanding of research collaborations. This will be followed by a panel discussion on a range of pertinent topics, including navigating hierarchical differences, tackling ethical dilemmas, engaging in difficult conversations, and forging productive and meaningful relationships. The panel will feature Drs. Rachel Balven, Hooria Jazaieri, Michael Lee, John Mathieu, and Michele Williams who will bring in their research expertise and personal experience into the panel discussion. Roundtable discussions will follow the panel, providing participants an opportunity to share their experiences in academic collaborations and potentially workshop strategies for attendees' individualized situations. The PDW will conclude with a summative discussion of key learnings.
