TITLE
ÖFOS 2012. Austrian Fields of Science and Technology Classification 2012
SUBJECT
Fields of Science Classification
DESCRIPTION
The Austrian Fields of Science and Technology Classification (ÖFOS 2012) is the Austrian version of the revised international Fields of Science and Technology Classification of the OECD (FOS) published in the Frascati Manual 2015 as Fields of Research and Development (FORD). These fields are adjusted to national needs, whose application for international comparisons is binding, particularly within the European Statistical System. The six major Fields of Science: Natural Sciences; Technical Sciences; Human Medicine, Health Sciences; Agricultural Sciences, Veterinary Medicine; Social Sciences and Humanities remained unchanged in comparison to ÖFOS 2002. In order to ensure international comparability, the previous 2-digit levels from 2002, which are no longer applicable, were replaced by new 3-digit levels (groups) according to the international FOS respectively FORD. These 3-digit levels were provided with further sub-groups (4-digits) taking into account the comments of the international classification. It is therefore feasible that the new Austrian Fields of Science adapt to national peculiarities of the Austrian research activities. The research area with the corresponding 6-digits in alphabetical order serves as a description of the fields of activities and research projects and/or for the coverage of the main scientific activities of a statistical unit in the research and development surveys.
