Interdisciplinary inquiry has begun to receive widespread attention because of the rich, creative contributions it often generates. But a host of factors, institutional, interpersonal and intellectual, also makes undertaking such research a daunting challenge for potential scientific partners. This volume is a practical guide to the most effective avenues for collaborative and integrative research in the social, behavioural, and biomedical sciences. What is the best way to conduct research programs in these areas? How do you identify appropriate collaborators? How do you find dedicated funding streams? How do you overcome peer-review and publishing challenges? This volume presents a series of case studies of successful interdisciplinary research programs, which provide a variety of models of how best to undertake interdisciplinary research in health and human science.
