February news about Integration and Implementation Sciences

Wednesday 1 March 2017

Gabriele Bammer’s invited contribution on Integration and Implementation Sciences was published with the release of the second edition of the Oxford Handbook of Interdisciplinarity. She was also invited to contribute a new version of her chapter on ‘Scoping public health problems’ to the 4th edition of the Oxford Handbook of Public Health Practice scheduled for release in 2019.

The January/February I2S News by Gabriele Bammer and Peter Deane was released. Among other items, it featured the International Transdisciplinarity Conference to be held in Germany in September, for which Gabriele is on the international advisory committee. The I2Insights blog (http://I2Insights.org), organised by Gabriele Bammer and Peter Deane, continues to advance steadily. Twelve of the 17 contributions published in January and February were from new contributors. A successful partnership has been entered into with the journal Evidence and Policy, whereby authors of papers relevant to the blog are invited to write blog posts. The journal makes the papers free-to-access for a month after the blog post is published. Five blog posts from this partnership have been published to date.

The Ignorance! MOOC (https://www.edx.org/course/ignorance-anux-igno101x-0 ) taught by Michael Smithson from RSP and Gabriele Bammer is drawing to a close after a successful run.
