Special Issue on
The Rigor of Inter-Disciplinary Communication
The main purpose of this journal special issue is to present different perspectives with regard to "The Rigor of Inter-Disciplinary Communication". Perspectives from 1) disciplinary, 1) inter-disciplinary, and 3) trans-disciplinary field are welcomed. Our hope is to be able to include three sections in this special issue associated with the three mentioned fields. This hope is associated with increasing the inter-disciplinary readership of this special issue. This would potentially contribute, a little bit, to knowledge integration for the potential readers.
Article Processing Costs (APC) will be waived for this special issue because of a financial support provided for such an important topic.
Abstracts (and respective articles) from any discipline, inter- and trans-disciplinary fields are welcome, as long as they are focused on what would be righteousness and/or how would be rigorous an interdisciplinary communication of the research results obtained in a given discipline or inter- and trans-disciplinary fields.
