An article in Science about interdisciplinary research challenges Troubled by Interdisciplinarity?. The article included good recommendations for interdisciplinary scholars. My favorite one so far is “Focus on your disciplinary strength and skills. It may sound counter intuitive, but in many situations your value as an interdisciplinary colleague is directly proportional to your skills in your own discipline. Keep up with the latest literature and theoretical developments in your disciplinary field so that you will be prepared to apply new knowledge and skills in diverse areas.”…very true and very challenging 🙂
