Delayed Impact of Interdisciplinary Research [article]

Yang Zhang, Yang Wang, Haifeng Du, Shlomo Havlin
2022 arXiv   pre-print
Here, we use the time to reach the citation peak to quantify the highest impact time and citation dynamics, and examine its relationship with interdisciplinarity.  ...  Furthermore, we study the underlying forces of such delayed impact, finding that the effect goes beyond the Matthew effect (i.e., the rich-get-richer effect).  ...  Our paper contributes to current discussions on complex relationships between interdisciplinarity and citation dynamics, while considering the different underlying forces.  ...

THE IMPACT AND DYNAMICS OF INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH IN CONTEMPORARY SCIENCE Given the growing impact of interdisciplinary research on various fields of science, there is a need for a deeper understanding  ...  Although interdisciplinarity is one of the main trends in modern science, the number of publications and research methods of monodisciplines have a significant advantage.  ...  There are several criteria for measuring the level of interdisciplinary impact on research. First, the relationship between the interdisciplinary project and previous disciplinary knowledge.  ...
