The concluding chapter sums up the book's insights with practical recommendations regarding the material requirements, project design, and social process of interdisciplinary research projects. Recommendations to granting organizations and university administrators address funding priorities, resources required, technical assistance, and criteria for assessment. Recommendations to principal investigators address the selection and composition of the research team, the distribution and supervision of responsibilities, and the needs of junior researchers. Additional recommendations for all researchers cover project design and research objectives, the sequencing of activities, the cultivation of interdisciplinary interaction, the capturing of emergent insights, the stages of a project life cycle, and the range of project outputs and outcomes in a larger ecology of scholarly communication.

Keywords:   recommendations, interdisciplinarity, research funding, research team, project-based research, research supervision, scholarly communication, assessment
