Abstract:
Conducting international research poses many challenges, yields rewards for participants, and promises scientific benefits. Technology and networking strategies can be harnessed to create teams, collect data, develop research proposals and plans, conduct research, and disseminate outcomes via presentations and manuscripts. The presenters of this paper will use cross-cultural research examples from their own work, including family research concerning abuse in the United States and Italy, to illustrate the richness of findings and insights gained when problems are approached from an international perspective. Formal and informal networking models will be described. Formal models based within organizations facilitate cross-cultural exchanges, visiting scholar programs, and international study and research opportunities. Programs sponsored by the World Health Organization and Fulbright fellowships are noted examples. Informal models comprise creative use of opportunities to engage in dialogue with colleagues from other countries. For example, conferences bring international scholars together to exchange their work; yet without targeted networking, chances to create viable collaborative relationships may be lost. Networking also is critical to designing research studies, accessing populations, interpreting across languages, and understanding meaning of data within a cultural context. Rapid development of information technology opens diverse opportunities for cross-cultural research. Advances in technology also create vast avenues for data collection in various locations via dedicated websites and email. Despite potential benefits inherent in using technology for cross-cultural research, differences in availability of technology can create difficulties. Strategies for solving problems encountered and for creating collaborative opportunities will be highlighted.
