The Interdisciplinary Process
This section describes the process of interdisciplinary research in relation to individual differences, cultural diversity, and contradicting standpoints. Stage one deals with the identification of the problem. The second step involves the presentation of suitable disciplinary templates, point/s of reference, significant theories and concepts, and related literatures. This is followed by the conceptualization of an integrative model, set of questions, group of participants, and (both past and current) data-gathering techniques. Third, there must be feasible resolutions to foreseen conflicts between various disciplines acquired through mutual learning. After this, the collaboration of relevant information (from different perspectives) as well as the assessment of their accuracy, dynamism, and applicability, should be conducted. At the end of the process, researchers should be able to negate or affirm the proposed responses and infer about future projects.
