Abstract:

Increasingly, innovations are achieved through the convergence of scientific fields and technologies. The interaction of research disciplines may also lead to new research areas. For example, "nanoscience" research has arisen from the interaction of physics and chemistry and is interdisciplinary in character. "Nanoscience" is also somewhat attracted to the life sciences, both directly and indirectly, as measured by co‐citation links. While interactions between nanoscience and life sciences are not yet strong enough to establish a research domain, the space between them may become the ground for a new area, e.g. bio‐nanoscience.
