Proposal and application of the interdisciplinarity borrowing index: Determining the degrees of interdisciplinarity of ILS dissertations

Cassidy Sugimoto

(Submission #92)


This work proposes the idea of a simple interdisciplinary borrowing index. This index calculates the degree of interdisciplinarity of a single unit of analysis. This index is applied to ILS dissertations to examine the degree of interdisciplinarity of these dissertations and the disciplines which are most heavily imported into the field. This work has implications for the future direction of ILS research.
