Technical Abstract: Coproduction in a public land management context involves carefully considering how researchers and managers will work together on each project. Despite the best intentions, things sometimes go wrong. We developed the set of 29 questions based on the authors’ collective experiences with aspects of coproduced projects that didn’t quite go as planned. The questions below focus specifically on problem solving and reflect what we wished we would have asked or done earlier in the project to help it move forward more smoothly and better meet its goals. The questions are grouped into five topic areas: (1) initiating coproduction and delivering actionable science products, (2) clarifying roles and decision-making, (3) defining and conducting the project, (4) communicating project outcomes and supporting the use of its products, and (5) evaluating project progress, products and impacts.
