Whether you are a practicing professional whose job requires print or online
communication, an academic teaching and researching professional
communication, or a student learning about the area, you probably agree that
communication in and related to work and civic activity has become
increasingly more international in the last thirty years.

You may have noticed that written, oral, and visual communication sent and
received across a room, a city, a country, a continent, or around the globe, in
a fraction of a second, has greatly supplanted communication in person or by
landline phone or written or typewritten on paper and then sent by fax, truck,
train or airplane to its destination. You may also have observed that creating
goods and services and the accompanying documentation in other countries
or continents to be used in different parts of the world is a far more
widespread practice now than two or three decades ago when most
organizations performed these tasks internally. You may even have noticed
that knowledge itself is no longer the distant province of elites from your own
or other countries, or something that people acquire in an initial period of
formal education for the rest of their lives, but rather a resource that is
constantly renewed, enlarged, disseminated, and acquired by individuals
anywhere in the world who are brought together by similar interests and
activities and the facilitating power of technology. And with greater access to
knowledge, means of travel and communication, people are, you may have
realized, more attentive to other languages and cultures--in a word, more
cosmopolitan.

As someone who depends on efficient and effective communication to get
your messages across and to understand the messages of others, you have
certainly given considerable thought, and even spoken and written about the
ways international professional communication influences, and is influenced
by context.

The first issue of connexions - international professional communication
journal | revista de comunicação profissional internacional aims at examining
the field from your point of view on

- the past, present, and foreseeable future of the practice, research, and
teaching of international professional communication, in local, national,
international, and global contexts,
and/or
- how the practice, research, and teaching of international professional
communication has reacted to changes in context, and acted upon its
contexts, in different parts of the world.
