The complexity of societal problems drives the need for interdisciplinary research. For example, the current COVID-19 pandemic illustrates the need for various disciplines to address worldwide challenges. Clearly, epidemiologists in a well-funded public health system (Maani and Galea, 2020) are needed to generate the basic science on the disease spread. However, beyond the disciplinary boundaries of epidemiology are the need for public organizations to effectively collect and act on the data, coordinating between elected and appointed officials (Kirlin, 2020). Moreover, disciplines researching budgets and finance and connecting lessons learned across nations provide valued insights in understanding the varied dimensions of responding to the pandemic (Holzer and Newbold, 2020). The Journal of Interdisciplinary Sciences (JIS) welcome submission, offering an opportunity to bring together varied research traditions, across varied disciplines to address complex, dynamic societal problems.
