Many of these problems call for interdisciplinary research that involves the joint, coordinated, and continuously integrated research efforts of investigators from different disciplinary backgrounds. Interdisciplinary researchers are known to cut across traditional disciplinary boundaries and work so closely with one another that individual contributions become difficult to identify. In chemical–biological interdisciplinary studies, for example, the chemist will perform biological experiments; the biologist will do chemical work.

In other fields, the collaborator advisor merely receives credit for advising students who complete degree requirements. Regardless of the field, publications and graduate students are of vital importance to this advisor, who will likely be seeking promotion and tenure.
