Using text analysis to quantify the similarity and evolution of scientific disciplines

Laércio Dias, Martin Gerlach, Joachim Scharloth, Eduardo G. Altmann
2018 Royal Society Open Science  
We use an information-theoretic measure of linguistic similarity to investigate the organization and evolution of scientific fields.  ...  An analysis of almost 20M papers from the past three decades reveals that the linguistic similarity is related but different from experts and citation-based classifications, leading to an improved view  ...  This scheme is a hierarchical tree with scientific fields defined at 3 levels (domains, disciplines, and specialties).  ...

An indicator of research front activity: Measuring intellectual organization as uncertainty reduction in document sets

Diana Lucio-Arias, Loet Leydesdorff
2009 Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology  
When using scientific literature to model scholarly discourse, a research specialty can be operationalized as an evolving set of related documents.  ...  The specific combinations of title words and cited references in a paper can then be considered as a signature of the knowledge claim in the paper: new words and combinations of words can be expected to  ...  Since 2000, citation analysis became an essential tool in the ranking exercises and the evaluation of scientific research. IP&M became a third journal with this specific focus.  ...
