Collaboration is a word that many people misuse. Other words that more accurately describe what they mean are “Contributions” or “Cooperation”. Contribution is when more than one person add their work together, like authors contributing chapters to a book. Cooperation is when we work on the same larger project, but one person is responsible for one aspect while the other person takes care of a different aspect. A plumber and electrician cooperate to build a single house. Collaboration implies a more intimate work of the content, where there are multiple iterations, there is consensus and minds are changed.

Most people really should be using the words Contribution or Cooperation.
