Abstract

This paper investigates the role of persuasion in research, specifically focusing on Trans-Disciplinary Communication (TDC). It distinguishes between convincing and obtaining consent, commitment, or consensus within TDC. It explores whether academic presenters should advocate for their positions or contribute to the disciplinary body of knowledge. The analysis employs a Systematic Literature Review and a Bibliometric Network visualization to examine state-of-the-art TDC research. Persuasion is contextualized within the public debate, and its relevance to the search for objective truth and paradigm shifts in research is discussed. The paper explores Trans-Disciplinary, Inter-Disciplinary, and Multi-Disciplinary Communication in collaborative research, highlighting the counterproductivity of contentious debates in TDC and convergence research. The role of persuasion is examined through theoretical frameworks such as Game Theory, Critical Theory, and the Theory of Interactive Team Cognition. This comprehensive exploration emphasizes the need for a Trans-Disciplinary approach to clarify terms and taxonomies and enhance understanding among researchers worldwide. It sheds light on communication and language functions, theoretical frameworks, and the debates surrounding TDC and convergence research. The paper suggests future directions for TDR and TDC, aiming to foster effective communication practices in the global research community.
