SCIENCE

For subheadings that overlap those in the NATURE section, use subjects in this section for scholarly works and/or works aimed at professionals and use subjects in the NATURE section for works aimed at a lay audience.

For subheadings that overlap those in the TECHNOLOGY & ENGINEERING section, use subjects in this section for works of a theoretical or historical nature and use subjects in the TECHNOLOGY & ENGINEERING section for works dealing with practical applications.
