What Interdisciplinary Research Is (And What It Isn’t)
While conducting studies that relate to multiple disciplines (e.g., combining Psychology with Health science, Sports, Technology, etc.) holds great appeal for researchers wishing to diversify their areas of impact (and opportunities for publication), a number of myths about interdisciplinary research can hold researchers back from combining multiple fields in ways that generate new insights by virtue of a gestalt effect. After overviewing several myths about what interdisciplinary research is (and what it isn't), this session will provide some helpful guidelines for conducting interdisciplinary research that will help you stay original and find a welcome audience for your research findings in multiple fields.
