All the contributors to this special issue offered their insights on the impact of the International Doctoral Seminar (IDS) in their journey as doctoral students. More than this, their collaborative work demonstrates how the participants attained the primary interest of the seminar, which is to promote research collaborations by engaging in collaborative, interdisciplinary, scholarly activities. Reading the manuscripts in this Special Issue, we were honoured to be participants ourselves. We witnessed how authors selected essential details of their transcultural experience and perspectives, reflected on them, and gave them an order to thereby make meaning of what constitutes their international journey. Beyond what these manuscripts tell us about transculturalism, the importance lies in the multiple ways in which they worked through dialogue and collaborative work. Undoubtedly, papers presented in this Special Issue have helped to shed light on the positive impact this seminar has for doctoral students.
