Domain Analysis (DA) and Its Dialogical Relations with Discourse Communities, Epistemic Communities, Metatheory, and Invisible Colleges: Interdisciplinary Methodological Perspectives in Knowledge Organization (KO) - Sponsored by SIG-CMR

Domain Analysis (DA) constitutes an important theoretical-methodological perspective of Knowledge Organization and Representation (KOR), as it provides contextual elements that emphasize the social, historical and cultural dimensions of the processes, instruments and products involved.
