Interdisciplinary research: How do 9 nations compare?
Interdisciplinary research is behind many of today's scientific breakthroughs, including those that provide tangible benefits to society. The complexity of nature and society compels researchers to break subject boundaries, drawing on insight and knowledge from a range of disciplines. To see how leading research nations compare in interdisciplinary research, Elsevier conducted a bibliometric review of IDR activity from 2009 to 2013 in the UK and eight comparator countries: Brazil, Canada, China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States.
