Hello all,

I find that the Wainhouse Research site has excellent reports of this 
type. It is targeted at the business community and not the research 
community, but they have extensive reports. Some of the more 
comprehensive studies cost money (the platinum membership) but lots are 
free as well.


For an academic treatment of the benefits and issues in scientific 
collaboration in particular, I think the best starting place is the CREW 
web site at the University of Michigan. They have some good papers about 
some of the success stories in "scientific collaboratories" that might 
be relevant to whatever case you are making.
