INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH REPKO PDF

Literature on interdisciplinary research has increased and developed to include a synthesis theory and practice from around the world. This book is recommended for undergraduate and graduate students and those involved in interdisciplinary research. Instructors using this as a primary or supplemental text will find the pedagogical revisions helpful in challenging students to engage with the interdisciplinary research process. I highly recommend it. Guiding questions at the beginning of each chapter encourage readers to remain focused, and newly incorporated examples of relevant, recent research demonstrate that interdisciplinary perspectives have the power to help us understand and shape the world around us--including people, policies, and even public spaces--for the better. While oriented to all levels from undergraduates to professional scholars, the book ably serves as a text for doctoral students; it has helped them achieve profound contributions.

By explaining interdisciplinary research as a process, Repko gives students the framework needed to carry out valuable and forward-thinking research. This text is vital to interdisciplinary studies and should be implemented in all interdisciplinary and integrative programs. Anderson show more About Allen F. Repko Allen F. The program is one of the largest in the United States. Repko has written extensively on all aspects of interdisciplinary studies, has twice served as coeditor of the interdisciplinary journal Issues in Integrative Studies, and has served on the board of the Association for Interdisciplinary Studies AIS.

Rick Szostak, PhD, is professor and chair of economics at the University of Alberta, where he has taught for 34 years. He is the author of a dozen books and 50 articles, all of an interdisciplinary nature. Several of his publications address how to do interdisciplinary research, teach interdisciplinary courses, administer interdisciplinary programs, or organize information in order to facilitate interdisciplinarity.

As an associate dean, he created the Office of Interdisciplinary Studies at the University of Alberta, the Science, Technology and Society program, an individualized major, and two courses about interdisciplinarity. He has twice served as coeditor of the interdisciplinary journal Issues in Integrative Studies.

Interdisciplinary vs. Disciplinary Research and Writing

Interdisciplinary Research The Interdisciplinary Research Process We cannot plunge into a discussion of best practices for interdisciplinary research without first contemplating the overall nature of the interdisciplinary research process. We urge researchers to be self-conscious and explicit about this research process. It cannot be stressed too much that these steps are iterative. Researchers need not start at the first step, and will often find that they revisit earlier steps or perform multiple steps simultaneously. In team projects one important form of iteration is when team members present interim results and these are critiqued by other members. This may lead to revisiting earlier steps.

Defining "Interdisciplinary" Klein and Newell offer the following widely-quoted definition of interdisciplinary studies: A process of answering a question, solving a problem, or addressing a topic that is too broad or complex to be dealt with adequately by a single discipline or profession… [It] draws on disciplinary perspectives and integrates their insights through construction of a more comprehensive perspective. Others may search for insights into what a concept means across different realms. They are conscious that all theories, methods, and disciplines are useful for some purposes but also have weaknesses. We should nevertheless be careful of stereotypes, for members of that discipline will deviate from disciplinary perspective to varying degrees.
