PathFinder: HeinOnline’s Multi-Level Discipline Taxonomy
Initially started as a small collection of law reviews, the Law Journal Library has grown over the past 20 years into a extensive scholarly journal database. The multidisciplinary content this database now contains has become not just applicable but essential to a variety of different academic and applied fields.
Using a combination of human curation along with natural language processing and machine learning, we’ve extracted thousands of research concepts from each article in the Law Journal Library database. The wide-ranging concepts cover a multitude of disciplines, illustrating the incredible scope of this journal library and leading us to organize them into a multi-level taxonomy that we call PathFinder.
There are currently 5 broad overarching Subjects:
- Social Sciences
- Natural and Formal Sciences
- Applied Sciences
- Other Industries
These overarching subjects then include more granular Subjects.
