Disciplinary, Asynthetic, Domain-Dependent: NARCIS a National Research Classification in Isolation
Keywords:NARCIS, classification, synthesis, disciplinary, domain-dependent
AbstractNARCIS, the National Academic Research and Collaborations Information System, is the national research portal of the Netherlands. NARCIS is governed by a knowledge organization system—a classification—by the same name. For a variety of reasons—a disciplinary base, a lack of synthesis, and domain-dependency—the NARCIS classification is highly compartmentalized and therefore inhospitable for interoperability. In addition, the classification has been revised repeatedly leading to the problems of scheme-versioning and subject ontogeny.
