Hi Sarven, all,

Thats a great idea, indeed! However, please, we should not came out with a huge set of example, only one per discipline. Just to be more precise, I would suggest to use the categorisation in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_academic_fields <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_academic_fields>, using the first level entities of such taxonomy, i.e.:

- Humanities
- Social sciences
- Natural sciences
- Formal sciences
- Professions and applied sciences

I think it would be enough to have one paper for each of the aforementioned fields for starting – better if the selected papers are Open Access, just to avoid useless discussions with publishers on rights to be shared in another channel by someone that is not the author of the article. I know that it is possible that subfields of each field can have different needs in terms of article content, but we cannot cover the whole literature at this point, can we?

I think Sarven and I could cover the “Formal sciences” part – in particular, while selecting a paper in the Computer Science sub-field, since we are actually working there, we need to consider something that include mathematical formulas I believe.

Could someone else help with the other fields?

Have a nice day :-)
