INTRA- AND TRANS - DISCIPLINARY SEMANTIC TECHNOLOGIES
The production of scientific knowledge is basically devised in disciplines. The emergence of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) has not yet reduced the dichotomy between hard and soft sciences. Contradicting meanings for the same concept or/and dissimilar terms for identical scientific contents often exist within a discipline and among disciplines. We initiate the discussion about meaningful categorization, search and exploitation of scientific knowledge by introducing the concept of intradisciplinary semantic technologies. G-work analytical framework is extended to trans-disciplinary scientific research in order to open a new path towards unity of scientific knowledge. In this direction, a structural improvement in Journal of Economic Literature (JEL) classification system is demonstrated. Interconnection to ACM Computing Classification System (1998) introduces transdisciplinary semantic technologies.
