Dear Core DMG:

I am now editing in the new audit_support category to the core dictionary. One of the proposed definitions listed below originally had very telegraphic descriptions of award types.  I have added my glosses of the meanings of the various types, please advise if there are errors! Note in particular that I have changed 'award' to 'prize', which hopefully was the intended meaning.  There is also a lot of overlap between 'bursary', 'scholarship' and 'studentship' - I think these might have different meanings in different countries, so it might be wise to merge at least the latter two.  Thoughts?

_definition.id                         '_audit_support.award_type'
_definition.update                     2020-08-23
        Type or kind of award.

_type.contents                         Text
_type.source                           Recorded

     prize                   'Funds are part of a prize'
     bursary               'Funds provided to students on the basis of need, to cover living expenses'
     contract              'Funds provided as part of a contractual agreement not covered by other award types'
     gift                      'Funds provided with no associated obligations'
     grant                   'Funds provided through a competitive grant system'
     other                   'Other type of award'
     scholarship         'Funds competitively awarded to students on the basis of academic merit'
     studentship         'Funds provided to students to carry out research during breaks in the academic year'

In summary: an audit_support category is added to the dictionary to capture funding support.

My comments: I see nothing controversial here. Regarding research organisation IDs, if the number of possible identifiers looks like it might grow, rather than define a dataname for every new id issuer, an alternative approach would be to have a plain 'organisation id' and then 'org_id_type', where the latter is drawn from an enumerated list of the various sources of identifiers and explains how to interpret the 'organisation id'.  Of course this makes it impossible to attach more than one id to a given organisation.

Does anyone else have any comments?
