“What do We Know about Nonprofit Collaboration? A Comprehensive Systematic Review of the Literature”

 

 

The committee unanimously selected “What do We Know about Nonprofit Collaboration? A Comprehensive Systematic Review of the Literature” as the best article from the 2015 ARNOVA conference. It was a well written and extensively thought out paper.

 

Although collaboration has been researched previously by many scholars, much of the work has been discipline specific. Gazley and Guo’s article is the first of its kind to systematically review 40 years of nonprofit collaboration literature from many different perspectives, and provide specific recommendations that researchers can immediately implement.  

 

The authors approached the systematic review of literature in a well-conceived and well executed manner.  Their methodological approach included analyzing the research method used in each article, the subfields in which nonprofit collaboration research is discussed, the nations in which nonprofit collaboration is studied, the types of nonprofit collaboration studied, and whether the research focused on the individual, organization or community.  

 

The authors findings were concrete and are usable to nonprofit researchers and practitioners alike. Gazley and Guo found that future collaboration research needs to focus on types of collaborations, collaboration failures as well as discuss collaboration beyond organizational theories.
