- Interdisciplinary Integration: Building Criminology by Stealing from our Friends
by D. Wayne Osgood, Pennsylvania State University.
Prof. Osgood suggests that the big issues in social justice are addressed by many fields, each with different strengths, different perspectives, different questions. By sharing our strengths across those differeneces we can build more effective theory, discover new questions that will enrich each of our fields.

- Abstract of Review onThe Dark Side of Organizations; Mistake, Misconduct, and Disaster
by Diane Vaughan. Article not yet published.
Looks like good example of what Professor Osgood is suggesting. Professor Vaughan reviews four different literatures to bring the varied approaches to the attention of each field. Her topic is the situation in which organizations go wrong, producing harmful outcomes: "mistake, misconduct, and disaster produced in and by organizations."
