Abstract

Given the emergence of new discipline, especially in social infor- matics, life science, sustainability science, there are growing needs for the formulation of corresponding Body of Knowledge. Prob- lems remain that there exist not authorities or domain-specific pro- fessionals who could give the entire body of knowledge of such new discipline. In order to tackle this issue, this paper introduces a method to formulate the Body of Knowledge, SIBOK, for a new discipline, a.k.a., social informatics, via a reverse engineering idea andWikiBOK. By validating over multiple clustering methods based on a variety of metrics of dissimilarity, linkage criteria and the number of clusters, it is concluded that the proposed SIBOK re- flects well the current situation of the social informatics education.
