    Loose tongues, tongues and groooves or biscuit joints and lots of glue, cramped up under pressure. Dowels and plenty of them is another option. Rather depends on the thickness of the material. It is never going to be that strong as there is no real continuity of the plies, so it will always need support. Laminating thinner ply (and staggering the joints) to get the right thickness is a far better option.

    It depends on the situation, the thickness of the plywood, the strength of the joint required, and the location of any supporting structure.

    Could do the following:

    Spline joint.

    Biscuit joints.

    Rabbet joint.

    Joiner across the unseen side of the plywood, if there is one.

    Edge to edge- use a spline joint.

    If looks do not matter I would find  a strip of metal(or a strip of plywood) and screw it to the plywood sheets as that will be the underside and nobody will see it.  Otherwise buy longer plywood.

    with solid wood or plywood underneath plus glue and screws. And you aren't going to make it strong enough for a skateboard ramp or wheelchair without serious support underneath

    If small (and thick) pieces you can use donut chips { see parentheses } ===[ () ]=== after making the cut ins and applying glue then shoving together. [Works better with solid wood.]

      "Biscuits" is the term I was struggling to remember the other day. A tip of the hat to Anon

    That depends why you are connecting them and what else the plywood is being connected to. Most things that are built don't connect pieces of plywood end to end, or at least don't rely on the connection between those two pieces of plywood for the strength of the thing being built.
