Chronological distribution of emerging referenced disciplines in biochemistry & molecular biology over the last 100 years

This content is not available in the selected language.

This article presents a condensed evolution of the interdisciplinarity of Biochemistry &Molecular Biology (BMB) by showing its chronological sequence of cited disciplines from 1910 until 2012. Interdisciplinary research has become a general approach for solving complex problems in modern science. The results of our research might help policy makers and funding agencies understand more comprehensively the interdisciplinary nature of specialties and disciplines. Using science overlay maps based on the NSF classification systems, our analysis confirms that interdisciplinarity begins with neighbouring fields and evolves to more distant cognitive areas.
