Abstract Background Academic-military research collaborations are desirable for many reasons; however, little guidance in the literature exists to help researchers understand collaboration requirements. Purpose To describe the process for establishing academic-military research collaborations. Method Specific collaboration requirements researchers must be aware of are outlined, two case studies are provided, and opportunities for and challenges with collaborations are discussed. Discussion Academic-military collaborations made it possible to conduct studies of stigma and barriers with mental health care among military nursing personnel and the utilization of secure messaging for health concerns with service members and healthcare providers. Planning these efforts began in the earliest stages of developing research proposals, and additional time was required to complete regulatory requirements prior to study implementation. Understanding military-specific considerations and establishing clear expectations and responsibilities were essential. Conclusions Despite the challenges involved, academic-military collaborations improve the quality of the research by enhancing access to funding, expertise, and resources. Highlights Research collaborations between academia and the U.S. military can be rewarding. Academic–military research collaborations can enhance access to funding. Unique requirements exist for military–academic collaborations. Academic–military collaborations require intensive planning from the early stages. Collaborators must allot additional time to complete all requirements.
