International Journal of Innovative Research and Scientific Studies (IJIRSS) is a forum to exchange applied research and knowledge across multiple distinct academic disciplines or fields of study. It caters to interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary, and transdisciplinary research and innovation in emerging fields of scientific studies.

This journal publishes Quarterly (4 issues per year: March, June, September, December) and all published issues of IJIRSS are freely accessible to everyone to read, cite and share.   It is published by Innovative Research Publishing.

The nature of interdisciplinary research

Interdisciplinary research is a product of the integration of information, data, techniques, tools, perspectives, concepts, and/or theories from two or more disciplines or bodies of specialized knowledge. It is a culmination of best practices, innovative tools and techniques, rubrics, and metrics, decision making, sustainability, disaster and crisis management, and global citizenship.

The future of interdisciplinary research

What is considered interdisciplinary today might be considered disciplinary tomorrow. Interdisciplinary research provides evidence of advanced fundamental understanding or innovative measures to solve problems whose solutions are beyond the scope of a single discipline. We have the responsibility to uncover the layers of interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary facts and expose the truth to the wide readership. It is important to know how academicians and environmentalists view the events happening around us. It is also important to know what led to certain anthropological and scientific inventions or political decisions.


The journal covers seven broad aspects - Social Sciences, Engineering,  Physical Sciences, Chemistry and Materials Science, Biological Science and Engineering, Environmental and Earth Sciences, and Medical Sciences and Healthcare. Each of these fields has recently seen a surge in innovation and research of an interdisciplinary nature.
