Several experiments have studied the production of multijets through the double-parton scattering mechanism. However, data interpretation has been hampered by the need to model both the longitudinal and the transverse partonic correlations at the same time. This paper illustrates that the near future perspectives to study proton-nucleus collisions at Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), as well as the plans for pA collisions at CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC), provide a feasible opportunity to study separately the longitudinal and transverse partonic correlations in the nucleon, as well as to check the validity of the underlying picture of multiple collisions.
