Abstract [en]

Following the innovative method from the SPRU paper by Hicks and Katz in 1996 we investigated different aspects of the interdisciplinary trends in Europe. The paper uses ISI data covering the period from 1982-2003. The trend towards multi- and interdisciplinarity in the natural, medical and technological sciences is growing stronger over time. In our analysis we use number of publications and citations in different areas of research, countries, sectors and universities. This gives an overview of interdiscplinafity as a phenomenon. Detailed Swedish data is used as a case study. The paper concludes with a short discussion on interdisciplinarity and research level.
