Exchanges: The Warwick Research Journal is the biannual online, double-blind peer-reviewed, open access interdisciplinary research journal of the Institute of Advanced Study (IAS), University of Warwick. We are inviting high-quality interdisciplinary submissions from researchers at all stages of their careers in all academic fields.
For the April 2017 edition of the journal, we particularly welcome submissions which will contribute to a themed section on ‘Collaboration’. Collaboration is essential to research within and across many disciplines. To tackle global issues and make a positive impact on society, researchers form networks not only with each other but also with a wide range of organisations at national and international level to share expertise and resources (funding, specialised equipment, etc.) and to generate and analyse large amount of data. Despite the many opportunities it affords, collaborative work can sometimes be problematic. Exchanges reflects on the promises, achievements, and pitfalls of collaboration and how some of the shortcomings and issues arising from it can be overcome.
Submissions which do not engage with the theme ‘Collaboration’ are also welcome.
