Researchers would like to collaborate with the researchers who are miles away but have similar interests in examining a particular phenomena or conducting a project. The phenomena in focus or the project parameters will definitely vary in their intensities in different contexts. So knowledge or patterns developed at one site will need validation and further enrichment by examining the same at multiple sites. Hence for effective synthesis of knowledge about any phenomena, it is essential to have international collaboration along with multi-site research. Further knowledge is discovered from the databases. Hence, a different perspective and different analysis to the same database will definitely lead to discovery of new knowledge body. Hence it is not only essential that the knowledge discovered is preserved but also the underlying data. The data can be essentially configured to the needs of new research projects. This paper tries to provide insights on how Social networking can be effectively used to identify potential collaborators in research, resolves issues in multisite-research, knowledge re-use and data configuration management.
