Model for Writing Scientific Articles Remotely Through Collaborative Tasks

Keywords: Collaborative work, SECI model, virtual scenarios, scientific writing, knowledge management

Abstract

There has been a lot of research on improving the process of scientific writing collaboratively, for example, indicators have been elaborated to measure the success of this type of activities, also, computer tools have been developed to facilitate this exercise, among other proposals. These research works have become relevant and pertinent due to the current conditions of pandemic (COVID-19), because, general isolation measures have been established that make it impossible to meet and interact with other people, which are important values to succeed in any collaborative activity. For this reason, the process of scientific research and writing has become extremely difficult in recent times; specifically, the lack of a structured process to organize and systematize scientific research at a distance through virtual means has been identified. Considering the above-mentioned problems, a model based on the contributions of collaborative engineering is presented, which allows the design of joint tasks from virtuality, adding elements of the SECI model, which seeks to manage knowledge and make it uniform among authors. To this end, the abstraction of common tasks when writing scientific articles was carried out and a model was proposed to improve this process. The validation of this was done through a case study where a group of researchers use the proposal and develop the writing of a research paper. Subsequently, promising results were obtained about the proposed model, with high levels of satisfaction among participants. Finally, it was found that this is an area of research in which contributions can be made, where the development of specific tools to evaluate collaborative activities is a latent need.
