Matthew’s previous blog post (Research Ontology of Find an Expert!) introduced the concept of using the Science-Metrix ontology as the starting point for how BU will classify research in the future.
To date we have not received any responses from BU staff as to whether you think these keywords are suitable, or any suggestions for alternative keywords.
These keywords will be extremely important going forwards as they will be the words used to classify your research expertise in the future, both internally and externally.
The ontology is based on 176 discipline sub-fields which can be viewed here. We are aware these might not be a finished product for BU’s needs but we need your input to further refine them for our use.
Your comments and ideas are very welcome and should be added as comments to the blog post.
