When asking for clarifications in this question, it occurred to me that, fundamentally, many customs pertaining conference abstracts depend actually on a single yes-no bit: there are some fields where conference abstracts are considered publications (engineering, computer science...), and some fields where they are not (mathematics, and, if I understand correctly, chemistry, biology, most fields within the humanities).
- Is this classification correct?
- Does this subdivision make sense?
- Is there a word or an expression to distinguish these two areas of academia? For instance, something that we can turn into a tag?
