Quick Reference

The application of more than one discipline to an object of study. A runner, for instance, may be studied by the exercise physiologist, the biomechanist, and the psychologist so that a full performance profile is generated from a number of perspectives; or the International Olympic Committee could be analysed by a sociologist specializing in large-scale organizations, an economist, and a political scientist with expertise in governance. These analyses may be complementary, but not necessarily integrated, as would be the case in a study based upon the principle of interdisciplinarity.

Subjects: Sport and Leisure.
