  title={Classifying by phenomena, theories and methods: Examples with focused social science theories},
  author={Rick Szostak and Claudio Gnoli},
  year={2009}
}
This paper shows how a variety of theories employed across a range of social sciences could be classified in terms of theory type. In each case, notation within the Integrated Level Classification is provided. The paper thus illustrates how one key element of the Leon Manifesto – that scholarly documents should be classified in terms of the theory(ies) applied can be achieved in practice. The León Manifesto <http://www.iskoi.org/ilc/leon.htm> argues that interdisciplinary research would benefit… Expand
Classifying for Diversity
This paper argues that a new approach to classification best supports and celebrates social diversity. It maintains that we should want a classification that both facilitates within-groupExpand
Beyond Aboutness: Classifying Causal Links in the Service of Interdisciplinarity
TLDR
This paper will focus on causal linkages and it will be argued that coding works in terms of the causal links theorized in the work allows a (notationally simple) much greater clarity in classification, and thus renders classification much more useful to the (especially) interdisciplinary scholar.

Vickery's late ideas on classification by phenomena and activities
Classification was always a major interest for Brian Vickery. In his last years he contributed to the theoretical debate on classification with original ideas that are not well known yet, as some ofExpand
Classifying Phenomena Part 1: Dimensions
TLDR
The independence of a phenomenon-based classification from the institutional divisions into disciplines contributes to giving knowledge organization a more proactive and influential role. Expand
Complex concepts into basic concepts

TLDR
This analysis will serve to identify the sort of ‘basic concepts’ that would lie at the heart of a truly universal classification of documents or ideas not grounded in particular disciplines or cultures. Expand
Foundational, First-Order, and Second-Order Classification Theory
Both basic and applied research on the construction, implementation, maintenance, and evaluation of classification schemes is called classification theory. If we employ Ritzer's metatheoreticalExpand
Classifying Authorial Perspective
TLDR
This paper addresses a variety of dimensions – rhetorical, ethic, epistemological, and so on – along which authorial intent or perspective might be evaluated, and proposes three guiding assumptions for classifying authorial perspective. Expand
An exploratory study of interdisciplinarity and breakthrough ideas
TLDR
An exploratory study to understand how to measure the degree of interdisciplinarity involved in novel, significant research fields, and how those measures capture the integration of disparate ideas in novel configurations. Expand
Classification revisited: a web of knowledge
TLDR
This chapter revisits some of the ways in which universal classifications, as language independent concept schemes, can assist humans and computers in structuring and presenting information and formulating queries. Expand
Freely faceted classification for a Web-based bibliographic archive : the BioAcoustic Reference Database
TLDR
Experience is being gained progressively, showing that freely faceted classification by phenomena, theories, and methods is feasible and working, and is being tested by indexing a corpus of about 3300 papers in the interdisciplinary domain of bioacoustics. Expand

TLDR
It is found that an exhaustive and universal classification of scholarly documents in terms of the phenomena that scholars study, and the theories and methods they apply, appears to be both possible and desirable. Expand
