Perhaps you could make an analogy from hospital nursing research committees
to interdisciplinary ones.   Try the CINAHL heading Committees (focus) AND
explode Research - leads to 84 citations, not all relevant.  I tried explode
Clinical Research, but that was too narrow. Given the hours that wil be
spent in meetings of this committee, screening 84 citations is not too bad.

Good luck - Peg
