Special Issue on
The Rigor of Inter-Disciplinary Communication


Is “Inter-Disciplinary Communication” more or less rigorous than “Intra-Disciplinary Communication”? Do these two kinds of communications have different kinds of intellectual rigor? Do the answers to these questions depend on the notion of “intellectual rigor”? What is, or should be, this notion of “intellectual rigor”? If an article has had a positive intra-disciplinary peer review and the author was asked to write it for inter-disciplinary communication, would that make the article more or less intellectually rigorous?

The purpose of this Call for Articles and Reviewers is to publish a multi-author paper of short articles (1000-2000 Words); which, after its publication, will support a Call for Papers for the Journal’s special issue. A printed edition would potentially be produced for this special issue and/or a multi-author book based on possible extensions of the papers of the special issue.

We invite you to participate in these publication(s) ON the Intellectual “Rigor of Inter-Disciplinary Communication”. The Article Processing Charge (APC) will be waived, for any of the publication(s) related to this call for articles and reviewers.

You can start your participation process in these, at least two, publications by submitting an abstract (200-400 Words) and/or offering your support as a reviewer. In the latter case, please send a CV of yours. If your abstract is accepted, then you can submit a short article (1000-2000 Words) for its publication in a multi-author article, if accepted after its reviewing.


October 9, 2019 – Abstracts (200-400 words), which should be submitted via email to idc[at] This is also the deadline for submitting the CV for those who may support the reviewing process.

October 12, 2019 – Notifications to abstracts’ authors, which will be sent in the following three(s) days after receiving the abstract. Consequently, the sooner you submit your abstract, the more time you will have for writing your short article is your abstract is accepted.

October 24, 2019 – Short Articles (1000-2000 Words) submissions.

November 8, 2019 – Notifications regarding the short articles.

November 22, 2019 – Reception of the final versions of the Short Articles

November 30, 2019 Publication of the multi-author article.

Deadlines for the Special Issue will be announced later. In any case the Special Issue will be published during year 2020.

Authors of accepted short articles have the option of submitting corresponding full papers (3000-5000 words) for their review and, if accepted, for its publication in a Special Issue of the Multi-Disciplinary Journal  of Systemic, Cybernetics and Informatics.

Editors Are From Different Disciplines

Professor Thomas Marlowe, PhD in Computer Science and PhD in Mathematics, Seton Hall University, USA, Department of Mathematics and, Computer Science, Program Advisor for Computer Science.

Jeremy Horne, PhD in Philosophy, President-emeritus, Southwest Area Division, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS), USA.

Nagib Callaos, PhD in Operations Research, President of the International Institute of Informatics and Systemic, USA, Former Dean of Research and Development of the University Simón Bolívar, Venezuela, Founding Editor in Chief of the Journal of Systemics, Cybernetics and Informatics.

Multi-Disciplinary Editorial Board of the Special Issue

The Editorial Board of the Special issue will be formed after the publication of the multi-author book.  The variety of different disciplines, of this Editorial Board, will be maximized, in order to increase the diversity of the intellectual perspectives from intra- inter- and trans-disciplinary fields. This diversity will, hopefully, make the Journal’s Special Issue adapt to a multi-disciplinary readership. (Ashby’s “requisite Variety Law”, First Law of Cybenetics: “only variety can destroy variety.”)


All accepted reviewers who made at least one review will be included in the list of reviewers of the Special Issue.


The submitted abstract may be: 1) on answering at least one question of those made above at the beginning of this page, or 2) related, but not restricted, to the following topics:

  • Differences between Inter- and Intra-disciplinary Communication Rigor.
  • What is Intellectual Rigor in Inter-Disciplinary Communication?
  • How Intellectual Rigor May be Achieved in Inter-Disciplinary Communication?
  • Peer Reviewing of Inter-Disciplinary Articles.
  • Commonalities between Inter- and Intra-disciplinary Communication Rigor.
  • The Rigor of an article written, or presented, for inter-disciplinary communication after having been accepted by means of intra-disciplinary peer-reviewing.

Please notice that this call for abstracts/articles is not FOR interdisciplinary communication, but ON “The Rigor of Inter-Disciplinary Communication”.
