Abstract: This paper highlights disadvantages of conceptual impreciseness, and advocates further attention to the labels and concepts used when classifying clusters or groups based on bibliographic data. The main focus of the analysis is on the concept of ‘discipline’ and how it is used in bibliometric research, but the implications concern a broader array of related terms.
