Spatially Integrated Social Science Research in Australia (2004)
Rapid change across society has resulted in shifts to the scope of social science research including the emergence of space and place as an important concept. Across research fields the result has been that a range of innovative and unique techniques, methodologies and theories that are space based are now being developed. While research is progressing rapidly, it is undertaken in parallel by researchers who can not always collaborate. Recognising these advances, this initiative focuses on harnessing Australia s capacity and potential in the use of spatially based methods and theories and brings researchers together in collaboration across a number of fields.
