This field should be a list selected from a multiple choice pre-defined set of values and would denote the scientific area(s) the students are coming from (should support multiple choices for workshops where students come from multiple domains).

The rationale behind this is that we (Software Sustainability Institute) often need to show numbers of people we trained or reached per domain (and would need to be able to link a domain with a funding body).

@anenadic What is the pre-defined set of values? Is it the same as KnowledgeDomain records, that is:

  • Chemistry
  • Civil, mechanical, chemical, or nuclear engineering
  • Computer science/electrical engineering
  • Don't know yet
  • Economics/business
  • Education
  • Genetics, genomics, bioinformatics
  • High performance computing
  • Humanities
  • Library and information science
  • Mathematics/statistics
  • Medicine
  • Organismal biology (ecology, botany, zoology, microbiology)
  • Physics
  • Planetary sciences (geology, climatology, oceanography, etc.)
  • Psychology/neuroscience
  • Social sciences
  • Space sciences

That classification would be a great start. Can it have some minimal changes/additions and I assume it would have to go through a consultation process? I could come back with some proposed modifications in the case we have any. Thanks for responding quickly.

It would also be good to have the same field for requests, and then move that over to events. So in the case the request does not go through to the event stage we still have a record of the domain. I could open a separate issue for this if need be.

@anenadic both training and workshop requests do have a field for KnowledgeDomain (TrainingRequest.domains and EventRequest.attendee_domains). Do we need something similar for DC self-organized workshops requests?

Can it have some minimal changes/additions and I assume it would have to go through a consultation process?

Sure, just keep in mind that the same set of options is reused on training request form ("areas of expertise") and swc/dc workshops request form ("Domains or topic of interest for target audience").
