Science Usenet Newsgroup Hierarchy
One of the groups that is involved in the BIG-8 hierarchy is the sci.* hierarchy. This group is made up of discussions marked by special and usually practical knowledge, relating to research in, or application of the established sciences.
Some of the sci.* groups are:
Sci.physics – the group is made up of technical discussion on physics.
Sci.math – this group contains discussions on math by many different professors.
Sci.military.naval – a discussion newsgroup that talks about the Navy.
Sci.econ – this group talks about economics, both macro and micro.
Sci.space.shuttle – this group is one, where people discuss the Space Shuttles.
There are many more popular groups in the sci.* hierarchy, but these are just a few of the groups that make it a popular hierarchy. The sci.* hierarchy is actually just the root hierarchy for many other hierarchies under it. Some of these groups include math, psychology, and physics.
Make sure when posting to a group, that you are in the group that is most relevant to your post as one might be created that is more specific to your discussion and not so broad of a topic. Most posters will frown on this if you post in the more generalized topic group and not in the one that suits you better, so make sure you are posting in the most appropriate group before you go ahead and post your message.
