Hi Timea,
Thank you for setting this up.
For me the classification 5.9 Social Sciences – Other Social Sciences and 5.1 Psychology and Cognitive Sciences would be suitable.
I agree with the others that publishing my personal email address would be fine, if we can ensure we wont be spammed by robots.
Best wishes,

Dear all,
This is just to let you know that we have published the Ambassadors overview page on the RDA website
Thank you for sending the information in. We have done minor edits to text and photos to harmonize them, please feel free to check and suggest any updates or corrections if necessary. We now also have an external contact list now set up now and will be promoting that as the way of contacting you.
As you might have seen from previous exchanges we would like to promote the use of the Frascati R&D categorisation in reference to disciplines
We kindly ask you to review the list and suggest what would be the best fitting title for you. If appropriate, it should be in the format broad classification / second-level classification e.g. Engineering and technology / Materials engineering, if not, it can be just the broad classification e.g. Social Sciences , if you feel that is more suitable and a better reflection of your work.
Thank you for your patience, we know we have already had an exchange on this but it is a work in progress with other activities and we think it would be good to align as much as and as soon as possible. We have also just now included it as mandatory field for the applications to the 2nd Ambassadors Open Call launched yesterday.
Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you need more information or clarifications.
Many thanks and best regards,
