“What are the publications on inter- and transdisciplinarity published in 2021 that are especially relevant, innovative and/or provocative?” This is the question that underpins the Tour d’Horizon of Literature 2021, which has just been published by td-net.
Providing a wide overview of the literature, the list is compiled by expert suggestions of the most important publications in the field of inter- and transdisciplinary research, education and practice. The publications are grouped into 5 Categories: 1) Theories and epistemologies; 2) Approaches, methods and tools; 3) Research policy: funding, quality criteria, evaluation; 4) Case studies and reflections on research projects; and 5) Education.
This year’s list has 40+ titles suggested by 20+ contributors. Recommendations from the SHAPE-ID team that made to the final list include SHAPE-ID’s third Policy Brief Pathways to Interdisciplinary and Transdisciplinary Research: the SHAPE-ID Toolkit, the The SHAPE-ID Toolkit: Overview, trajectories, and user guidance, the Case Studies Collection, and the Annotated Bibliography Collection.
