The current literature review looks at the way in which the researcher–practitioner relationship is described in research publications.

The main finding of this review points to: a limited description and discussion of the relationship; a similarly limited, sometimes confusing, understanding of the notion of collaboration; as well as limited self‐reflection, sometimes accompanied by taken‐for‐granted attitudes on the part of the researchers.
