Interdisciplinary Behavioral and Social Science Research  (IBSS)

This program has been archived.

Notice Regarding the IBSS Competition

Effective in April 2016, the Directorate for Social, Behavioral, and Economic Sciences (SBE) at the National Science Foundation has decided to end the Interdisciplinary Behavioral and Social Science Research (IBSS) competition with the current competition in FY 2016. There will be no further IBSS competitions.

Researchers who are interested in obtaining support for research projects that IBSS might have considered should explore whether their research might be appropriate for consideration in another NSF competition. They should also think about submitting a proposal for consideration by one or more of the standing NSF programs. For any follow-up questions about these options, researchers should contact the program officer(s) for the program(s) or competition(s) of possible interest.

SYNOPSIS

The Interdisciplinary Behavioral and Social Science Research (IBSS) competition promotes the conduct of interdisciplinary research by teams of investigators in the social and behavioral sciences. Emphasis is placed on support for research that involves researchers from multiple SBE disciplinary fields and that integrates scientific theoretical approaches and methodologies from multiple SBE disciplinary fields.  Emphasis also is placed on the significance of expected intellectual contributions that are likely to yield generalizable insights and information that will enhance theoretical perspectives and advance basic knowledge and capabilities across multiple SBE disciplinary fields.  Although the IBSS competition will consider any proposal that addresses a topic for which the proposal makes a compelling case that the research will enhance broader theoretical understanding across multiple social and behavioral science fields, social and behavioral science researchers are especially encouraged to submit proposals for research on one of the following three broadly defined topics:  Population Change; Sources and Consequences of Disparities; and Technology, New Media, and Social Networks.
