The dysfunctional use of resources in modern societies arises from increasingly fragmented ways of understanding natural resources. Consequently, there have been repeated calls for integrative knowledge production, and various approaches to integration have been proposed, including such as interdisciplinary or transdisciplinary resource research and integrated resource management. The conceptual space proposed here can be applied as a tool for imagining and designing new approaches, methods, and research techniques toward a more reflexive understanding of integration-oriented research on natural resources.

More about this publication?
  • GAIA is a peer-reviewed inter- and transdisciplinary journal for scientists and other interested parties concerned with the causes and analyses of environmental and sustainability problems and their solutions.

    Environmental problems cannot be solved by one academic discipline. The complex natures of these problems require cooperation across disciplinary boundaries. Since 1991, GAIA has offered a well-balanced and practice-oriented forum for transdisciplinary research. GAIA offers first-hand information on state of the art environmental research and on current solutions to environmental problems. Well-known editors, advisors, and authors work to ensure the high quality of the contributions found in GAIA and a unique transdisciplinary dialogue – in a comprehensible style.

    GAIA is an ISI-journal, listed in the Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Science Citation Index and in Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences.

    All contributions undergo a double-blind peer review.
