I am working on a project, where I am the author of the idea. Also, I found the data (open-source) that can work well with the idea of the paper.
I invited one of my colleagues to work with me on this project. We have agreed that I will be the first author.
As this is the first time for me to work on a paper, I really do not understand the role of communication with the co-author. So, can I share with the co-author the analysis of the data (before writing the paper? In other words, can I show the co-author my works and software codes? or I must write the paper (my role) and then they can look at it. I ask this question for two reasons:
To understand my roles and duties.
To avoid bothering my colleague with my work.
Can someone help me with this point, please?
