As an academic, one has to publish. Often, an article is drafted, and you need feedback of a colleague. I see that quite often some perspective articles are often written by long-term collaborating pairs of authors.
What are some strategies people use to get feedback on their articles (outside of immediate boss; and in the case that none of the friends in the field of work in the specific domain of the article, and one needs specific (not general) feedback)?
How do you approach a colleague to simply read your article. Or do you just mention it at a conference to the most suitable colleague - would you like to read an article and give me feedback? How do handle the co-authorship or acknowledgement? Do you establish the limits at the "approach time"?
What are some strategies to establish a "publishing" duos (buddies).
Internet is there for us to help and collaborate. Banyan recently launched a public beta version. It is for "sharing, collaborating & publishing research".
Personally I think this product, or a similar product that applies open source idea (which is working pretty good for software development) into research, can both help with getting feedback of an ongoing work and establishing a long-term co-authorship as well.
