How do I begin working with a partner on school project?

I've managed to avoid working in school teams or groups since I was nine years old but no more. I have to do a research project to be submitted to journals for publishing with a classmate. Designing and carrying out a feasible project in a semester would already be a lot to me, but I need some guidance on how to facilitate the process with a partner.

I don't even know where to begin, what to say to her first. This is online so we can't meet face to face. It will be email and Skype. The class is crime analysis/crime mapping so the project wouldn't require a lab or meeting in person, probably more like analyzing records and patterns (not sure since this is my first class on that subject). But writing papers has always been personal and idiosyncratic for me, done on a schedule that makes sense in my mind but may not be how anyone else works. So how do we do this, how does it begin, what are the steps?
