Historical studies of information structures and services in domains, 7. Studies of documents and genres in knowledge domains, 8. Epistemological and critical studies of different paradigms, assumptions, and interests in domains, 9. Knowledge about terminological studies, LSP (Languages for Special Purposes), and discourse analysis in knowledge fields, 10. Knowledge about and studies of structures and institutions in scientific and professional communication in a domain, 11.
