Scholarship of integration

The scholarship of integration gives meaning to isolated facts and puts them in perspective within a broader field of knowledge. This often involves making connections across disciplines, placing specialties in larger contexts, and illuminating data in a revealing way. Work in this area also includes educating non-specialists on advancements in knowledge in a particular field. Examples of evidence of this type of scholarship includes: literature reviews, discussion and commentary papers in peer-reviewed publications, and research textbooks (including chapter contributions).
