Is cross-disciplinary research linked to policy relevance?

Presentation prepared for the International Center for the Study of Research, September 2020.

The Science-Metrix team was pleased to share the results of some recent bibliometric research via Elsevier’s International Center for the Study of Research (ICSR).

In a context where an increasing number of funding programmes promote cross-disciplinary research to fuel socially relevant research outcomes, this ICSR Perspectives video summarizes a study testing if this mode of research is positively associated with citations in policy relevant documents.
