Starting Date:

Working Group: 
3
Status: 
Done
Closing Date: 
2002-10-23
Current Proposal: 

Add to scope note for E17 that determination is an example of Type assignment in the biological sciences.

New scope note:

This entity describes the act of classifying another entity, for example an object, a specimen, an action or a concept. The value of classification depends critically on the identity of the classifier and the date that the classification was assigned. This entity also comprises the process of "determination," i.e. the systematic and molecular identification of a specimen in biology. 
Example: "first classification of object GE34604 as Lament Cloth, October 2,
1998 by I.Dionissiadou".
