Some say the scholar-practitioner form of knowledge creation started with Kurt Lewin in the 1950’s. Others contend that it is the most natural form of knowledge creation practiced by people throughout time. This 30 minute video introduces the basic tenets of action research.

Implementation science is based on observations and evidence accumulated since the 1960s. Even at this early stage, it is becoming clear there is a continuum of research, evaluation, and theorizing. One end of the continuum is marked by basic research and the other by applied research.

Resource Type: 

A new discipline – Integration and Implementation Sciences (I2S) – could provide a systematic way to allow people to effectively mix-and-match concepts and methods from systems thinking, inter- and trans-disciplinarity, implementation science, team science, complexity science and other approaches to more effectively

This video overview of interdisciplinarity identifies major developments over a century of work in an expanding variety of contexts, the communities of practices that emerged, and current trendlines. (Interdisciplinarity is nearing its 100th anniversary, dating from the earliest documented uses of the term in the early 20th century.)

Resource Type: 

Reflections by 14 teams linking health and social scientists identified key attributes which help or hinder success relating to:

Resource Type: 
Subject: 

Three guides have been developed to share collective knowledge on how funders, researchers, and wider research partners can work together for better outcomes to address pressing societal challenges.

This open-access book provides "practical guidance on how to conduct interdisciplinary research effectively with multi-member teams operating across departments and institutions." Chapters are:

Analysis of five large-scale case studies identified five key success factors, which all have implications for funding:

Resource Type: 

Ten aspects of interdisciplinary research are covered, with the guides providing easy access to best practices for a) developing, reviewing, funding and evaluating proposals, b) supervising PhDs, as well as c) various aspects of research management.

These two videos describe the difference between analysis (study of the parts) and synthesis (understanding of the whole). Analysis provides knowledge; synthesis provides understanding. Describes that all systems are parts of larger systems.
