Discovery Module Field of Research (FoR) Tags

Field of Research (FoR) codes have been added to Elements faculty profiles. These research codes add tags to faculty profiles to ensure that the Discovery module is searchable based on research interest.

The FoR codes assigned to your profile are based on publication data that was previously entered in the Elements database. If you want to change the codes that identify your work to make it more search-friendly, you may edit the Fields of Research tags within your Elements profile.
