Topic-centered Scientific Collaborations of Scholarly Journals in Information Science: A Pilot Study of Implementation
This proposal is the extended work in implementation of a framework of topic-centered collaboration network. A goal of this study is to investigate the question of: In which topics and in what extent researchers collaborate with others? Topic-centered collaboration networks for two scholarly journals in the field of information science are constructed using bibliographic datasets for the past five years. This proposal contributes to the areas of both collaboration social network and big metadata.
