Abstract

This article discusses three sets of insights generated in this special issue relating to the intended objectives and desired outcomes of coproduction, the inherent tensions in coproduction activities, and important factors for designing and implementing coproduction processes. It also identifies several problems with coproduction research, and asserts that scholars must get back to the basics and address the need for a clear and consistently applied definition, the need to develop and apply frameworks, typologies, and theories, and the need for more explanatory research. The article concludes with a set of research questions to advance the study and practice of coproduction.
