Domain analysis provides a set of techniques for extracting and analyzing the semantic intellectual content of a coherent group. A major tool for knowledge organization, domain analysis has been successfully applied to such diverse domains as “musicianship” (Lam 2011), “gourmet cooking” (Hartel 2010), and “scientific computing” (Tanaka 2010). [..] Recently, Smiraglia defined a domain (2012, 114) in these terms: "a group with an ontological base that reveals an underlying teleology, a set of common hypotheses, epistemological consensus on methodological approaches, and social semantics." Domain analytical techniques draw out the concepts that form these components of domain coherence.
