Is there an existing instrument to measure the ability or capacity of scholars to engage in interdisciplinary/transdisciplinary scholarship?
I am interested in comparing levels of interdisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity in various disciplines and epistemic cultures that are engaged in environmental research. I plan to do surveys and I was wondering if there are existing instruments out there that measure an individual's aptitude for or values associated with interdisciplinarity or transdisciplinarity. If not, then I think it would be an excellent opportunity for us to develop one. I plan to survey graduate students and faculty from various disciplines and institutions in North America and Asia, who do some research work related to the environment and sustainable development.
