Social science classification for FORIS and SOLIS

The research projects and publications stored in the databases FORIS and SOLIS are assigned to at least one sub-discipline (e.g. family sociology, organisational sociology, etc.) or to an interdisciplinary subject area (e.g. women's studies, gerontology) taken from the social science classification. The classification scheme was implemented identically in 1996 for both databases, and then applied retrospectively to earlier years. Codes and text (in German and English as well as in German with explanations) are available here directly or can be ordered at no cost from IZ.
