Scientists must work together to save the world. A special issue asks how they can scale disciplinary walls. [Excerpt] Scientists must work together to save the world. A special issue asks how they can scale disciplinary walls. To solve the grand challenges facing society – energy, water, climate, food, health – scientists and social scientists must work together. But research that transcends conventional academic boundaries is harder to fund, do, review and publish – and those who attempt it struggle for recognition and advancement (see World View, page 291). This special issue examines what governments, funders, journals, universities and academics must do to make interdisciplinary work a joy rather than a curse.

[Excerpt] Scientists must work together to save the world. A special issue asks how they can scale disciplinary walls. To solve the grand challenges facing society -- energy, water, climate, food, health -- scientists and social scientists must work together. But research that transcends conventional academic boundaries is harder to fund, do, review and publish -- and those who attempt it struggle for recognition and advancement (see World View, page 291).
