Research collaboration is increasingly interdisciplinary in nature, with those working in traditional scientific fields of science, technology, engineering and medicine recognizing the value of collaboration with those working in the, humanities, arts and social sciences. This chapter explores the challenges and opportunities for communication within and from cross-sectoral research teams. The authors draw examples from researched case studies to describe how cross-sectoral collaboration positions science within the social context. They also look at how crosssectoral communication relates to current models of science communication.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
