Web Science Subject Categorization (WSSC): A proposal

Following the fruitful discussions with L. Carr, G. Metakides, I. Anagnostopoulos, J. Kopecky, and K. O’Hara about an early version of the Web Science Subject Categorization (WSSC) system I presented a “stable” version of the first epistemological index for the scientific study of the Web. The WSSC aims to facilitate communication and collaboration among scholars of the Web from various perspectives i.e. computational, mathematical, social, economic and legal.
