  2. If not, click "Add New Field of Science" button and register new FOS.

Removing FOS

  2. Click x button next to the FOS that you want to remove.


  • If you are merging 2 or more duplicate FOS into one, it is best to remove the FOS with least amount of association so that you don't have to edit many entries.
  • Gratia doesn't store FOS info, but uses Project Name and query OIM to get FOS, so you don't have to worry about Gratia when you are administering FOS in OIM.
  • No labels
