British Ecological Society release their Guide to Interdisciplinary Research

We increasingly hear calls for more interdisciplinary approaches to tackling the deeply complex problems of climate change, biodiversity loss, and the increasing pressures on Earth’s planetary boundaries. But resources to help practitioners develop an interdisciplinary approach are few and far between.

Because of this, the British Ecological Society have released their Interdisciplinary Research Guide as a part of their Guides to Better Science publication series. The guide is for researchers embarking on their first interdisciplinary project. It covers practical steps to take when conceiving, planning, or participating in an interdisciplinary project.

We hope the guide will be useful to you when broadening the scope of your research. If you are interested in learning more about interdisciplinary approaches, join us at envecon 2022 (Friday, 18th March) where UKNEE and the British Ecological Society will host a join session on this topic. Registration will open in January.
