As in the U.S. so elsewhere, new and emerging academic content areas such as information professions or intelligence studies continue to develop. These two emerging areas are even now in the process of seeking recognition as independent academic areas. As new and emerging knowledge areas such as information professions and intelligence studies develop, professionals in that content area move into jobs that allow for broader application of their learned skills and expertise. These new emerging fields seek the support of the academic community to get formal “recognition,” and people working in these areas should also be “recognized” for their applications of learned skills and knowledge. The purpose of formal “recognition” is to secure societal recognition for new emerging areas of knowledge and its applications; it is also to secure societal standing for people working in those areas and their contributions to the application of these new areas of knowledge. Such “recognition” as I propose, would identify the content areas of academic programs as meeting these emerging areas of knowledge and their applications.
