A Hybrid Approach for Dynamic Topic Models with Fluctuating Number of Topics

Christin Katharina Kreutz
2018 Workshop Grundlagen von Datenbanken  
Scientific communities are always changing and evolving. Topics of today might split or even disappear in the future, other topics might merge or appear at some time.  ...  Nowadays, the closest we come to picture these developments are dynamic topic models which come with a fixed number of topics k. It would be desirable to omit k.  ...  Methodology Of the enriched dblp data, only English publications whose abstract was of considerable length (≥ 10 words, fewer words indicate flawed data) were taken into account.  ...

Adaptive methodology. Topic, theory, method and data in ongoing conversation

Kristof van Assche, Raoul Beunen, Martijn Duineveld, Monica Gruezmacher
2021 International Journal of Social Research Methodology  
This paper explores the concept of adaptive research design, in which topic, theoretical framing, method, and data are in principle open to adaptation during the research process.  ...  To deepen the understanding of the adaptive capacity of methodology, we broaden the discussion to look at the embedding of methodology in academia and its disciplines.  ...  The first, is the mapping of the identification of a researcher with a particular discipline and the identification of that discipline with a set of theories and methods.  ...
