Proposed revision for Research Blogging topic tags

Administration 6 Comments
By Dave Munger

Based on your comments on this post, as well as responses on Twitter and input from the Research Blogging editors, here’s a proposed revised set of topic tags. When bloggers register for the site, they may pick one major tag (in bold) and are urged to select just one secondary tag (in regular type). These are the default tags selected when bloggers create citations, but bloggers are free to override these defaults and select as many tags as they like for individual posts.

Here are the major changes:

  • Secondary Astronomy tags revised to match the arXiv
  • A new major tag, Ecology / Conservation, with several secondary tags
  • The major tag, Clinical Research, has been renamed to Medicine, and some secondary tags from Health have been moved to this tag
  • Computer Science and Engineering were merged into a single major tag
  • Several new secondary tags were added to the Psychology tag

Of course, other changes have been made as well. Below is the full proposed list of recommended tags. Please let us know if you have any last-minute suggestions before they are implemented.

    In Physics, I would suggest adding “Thermodynamics,” “Statistical Mechanics,” “Non-linear Dynamics,” “Quantum Information,” “Applied Physics,” and “Mathematical Physics.” I’m sure there are other high-level categories that could show up regularly, but that’s what comes to mind right away.
