Practicing Interdisciplinarity

SHARACHCHANDRA LÉLÉ, RICHARD B. NORGAARD
2005 BioScience  
We posit four barriers to interdisciplinarity that are common across many disciplines and draw on our own experience and on other sources to explore how these barriers are manifested.  ...  Interdisciplinarity is about working across boundaries.  ...  T hinking collectively about complex problems requires crossing boundaries both horizontally (across disciplines) and vertically (across experts, policymakers, practitioners, and the public) (Klein 2004  ...

Incommensurability in Cross-Disciplinary Research: A Call for Cultural Negotiation

Anne MacCleave
2006 International Journal of Qualitative Methods  
This process might help methodologists think about researching across disciplines in new and more effective ways.  ...  Cultural negotiation helps to make differences more accessible and understandable rather than creating inflexible or polarized ideological camps.  ...  This defensive posturing, albeit understandable, precludes successful collaboration across disciplinary boundaries. CAN THIS RESEARCH TEAM BE SAVED?  ...
