In academia, we are encouraged to inter-, multi- or transdisciplinary research collaboration. But what does that really mean? Although there is a consensus about the need to apply these practices, there is no agreement over definitions, and they are used interchangeably.
These days, researchers are expected to communicate their knowledge, the scientific process and results to the publics and to interact with stakeholders. Many researchers are adding communication, such as expert blogs and social media presence, to their routine activities. The digital platforms provide easy ways for highlighting the important topics. Yet there is more potential to be released.
