Domain specificity

Table of contents

The act of sharing and re-using knowledge represents a major research area in the information society, establishing a direct and twofold connection with terminology, which, due to its very nature, is necessarily present in every scientific field. Although it is possible to distinguish the several processes of classification, organization and representation of knowledge, their natural intertwining prevents us from delineating an exact context of use. Perhaps the wisest thing to do would be to consider the purpose, as these processes can be applied to several conceptualization and specification needs. Regardless of the tools that are chosen, however, the multi-disciplinary nature of the task is evident.
