The kind of collaboration considered here is by definition mutually beneficial. Thus, it benefits everyone involved in the process. The amount of benefit may vary depending on participants’ roles and responsibilities. In contrast, in a cooperative process, one party helps the other party in fulfilling their goals. A student gathering relevant literature for his supervisor is an act of cooperation, contributing to the supervisor’s goal. Co-authorship, on the other hand, is an act of collaboration, benefiting all the participants.
