3. Taxonomy
Pages 19-24

The Chapter Skim interface presents what we've algorithmically identified as the most significant single chunk of text within every page in the chapter.

... The proposed taxonomy builds upon the previous studies, in order to represent the continuity of doctoral research and training and to provide a basis for potential users of the proposed analysis to identify information important to them. Those users include scholars, students, academic administrators as well as industrial and governmental employers.

... In addition, it should make a special effort to include programs in the basic biomedical sciences that are housed in medical schools. The Committee reviewed doctorate production over the period 1998-2002 for fields included in the Doctorate Records Field.

... Given the trial taxonomy, many biological science programs are highly interdisciplinary and combine a number of fields. The Committee hopes to address this issue by asking respondents to indicate if faculty, who specialize in a particular field, teach and supervise dissertations in a broad biological science graduate program.
From page 24...
... Recommendation 3.9: Emerging fields should be identified, based on their increased scholarly and training activity (e.g., race, ethnicity, and Post-Colonial studies; feminist, gender, and sexuality studies; nanoscience; ASSESSING RESEARCH-DOCTORATE PROGRAMS computational biology)
