Title
Subject areas, disciplines, and the concept of authority

Abstract
Demonstrates that boundaries of the subject specific araeas within which authority is established parallel those of academic disciplines. Narrower than any abstract definiton of the subject area, these boundaries are based on social participation in the disciplinary community. Researchers oversimplify or ignore factors of interest to other disciplines. Authoritative sources are likely to be available for information of disciplinary interest and to present views of subjects that are as partial as those of the disciplines form which their authority is derived
