    Hi Rick, thank you for this valuable article. I very much agree with your proposition, based on my own experience of where research went beyond disciplinary silos and in doing so uncovered unknown unknowns. I’ve documented one such case study of this in the article Case Study: The dangers of information silos.

    I then further explore the disciplinary silo issues that were the basis for the issue discussed in that case study in the follow-on article Case study: How polarized debates can be the result of rational deliberation, and how they can be resolved.

    The second article includes discussion of approaches to bridging disciplinary boundaries from a 2019 paper.
