Exciting Announcement: Publication in the Brazilian Journal of Business

I am thrilled to share our latest publication in the esteemed Brazilian Journal of Business. The paper, « Collaborative Convergence: Finding the Language for Trans-Disciplinary Communication to Occur,» is a collaboration with Dr. James Lipuma. It’s an honor to be a part of this paper (Leon & Lipuma, 2024).

Paper Abstract:

The proper study of communication from existing models opens the doors to scientific research that allows exploring language and coding as an integral part of effective communication to generate new models that include Trans-Disciplinary Collaboration. The authors analyze the communication factors to describe the application of Trans-Disciplinary Communication.

This paper aims to define communication processes and their relationship with language, considering their impact on trans-disciplinary collaboration and innovation.

After conducting a systematic literature review, the article explored the concepts of communication, functions, language, and Trans-Disciplinary Communication. This led to its application in the convergence research approach presented in the Collaborative Convergence Pyramid.

Keywords:

Scenario, Collaboration, Communication, Trans-Disciplinary Communication (TDC), Idiolect, Factors, Convergence, SDG4 education.
