Abstract: The organization and codification of the field of Communication Sciences is studied, mainly in regard to UNESCO codes. The objective is to propose a change in these codes, because the classification and organization method of a scientific discipline has operational and epistemological consequences in the academic work. In this paper the current classification is presented, which shows a limited and scattered presence of terms related to Communication. Practical and theoretical difficulties of its reorganization, possible sources (curricula, conferences, scientific journals, documentary proposals, keywords) and work methods are described, considering two theoretical bases: Knowledge Organization and Communication. Finally, two different disciplines (History of Communication and Communication Technologies) are analysed through the information collected in a database, which includes subjects of Bachelor and Master degrees in 12 Spanish universities. It is also noted that this kind of proposal requires knowledge derived from documentary instruments such as classifications and thesauri.
Translated abstract: Se estudia la codificaci贸n y organizaci贸n del campo de las Ciencias de la Comunicaci贸n, fundamentalmente los c贸digos Unesco. El objetivo es plantear un cambio en estos c贸digos, puesto que la forma de clasificar y organizar un dominio cient铆fico tiene consecuencias de naturaleza operativa y epistemol贸gica en el propio trabajo cient铆fico. En este trabajo se estudia la clasificaci贸n actual, que muestra una presencia escasa y dispersa de los t茅rminos vinculados a Comunicaci贸n. Se describen las dificultades pr谩cticas y te贸ricas que conlleva su reorganizaci贸n, las posibles fuentes (planes de estudio, congresos, revistas cient铆ficas, propuestas documentales y palabras clave) y los m茅todos de trabajo que se pueden emplear, tomando como bases te贸ricas el dominio de la Organizaci贸n del Conocimiento y el de la Comunicaci贸n. Por 煤ltimo, se analizan dos 谩mbitos disciplinares diferentes (Historia de la Comunicaci贸n y Tecnolog铆as de la Comunicaci贸n), mediante la informaci贸n recogida, en una base de datos, de asignaturas en grado y en m谩steres oficiales de 12 universidades espa帽olas. Tambi茅n se observa que este tipo de propuesta requiere el conocimiento derivado de instrumentos documentales como las clasificaciones y los tesauros.
