In future, changes in science and society will increasingly demand interdisciplinarily prepared professionals and researchers. Inter/transdisciplinarity has been worked on theoretically and scientifically examined. This review study shows how both approaches are explained, how they are put into practice in doctoral studies, the results of the interdisciplinary approaches applied, but also their limitations and barriers.
