Interdisciplinary research: illustrations of Repko’s model

Resource Type:

This collection of cases illustrates how to draw on disciplinary insights, as well as different approaches to integration. They are based on Repko’s model of the interdisciplinary research process (found in Interdisciplinary Research: Process and Theory (2008; second edition, 2012)). Topics cover Israel’s conflicted identify, “the metropolitan problem”, the causes of suicide terrorism, the causes of economic growth, the evolutionary origin of language, understanding human action, and school violence. The book concludes by presenting a comparative knowledge base on research integration.
