A scholar's discipline is defined by the university faculties and learned societies to which they belong and the academic journals in which they publish research. Disciplines vary between well-established ones that exist in all universities and have well-defined rosters of journals and conferences, nascent ones supported by only a few universities and publications. A discipline may have branches, these are called sub-disciplines; the following outline is provided as topical guide to academic disciplines. In each case an entry at the highest level of the hierarchy is a group of broadly similar disciplines.
