The goal of this qualitative study is to identify the essential elements to consider for successful researcher-practitioner (R-P) collaborations that focus on violence against women (VAW).
The benefits of R-P collaborations focused on VAW are many. Such projects support researchers and practitioners working together to create uniquely comprehensive projects that have the potential to change practices, policies, and services. Extant literature is limited in that it has (a) focused on the experiences of a very limited number of collaborations, (b) ignored collaborations conducted in the context of the criminal justice system, and (c) excluded as a focus the products that result from the collaborations and their dissemination.
