Text Mining for Science and Technology – A Review Part I – Characterization/ Scientometrics. Journal of Scientometric Research. 2012;1(1):11-21. doi:10.5530/jscires.2012.1.5..
This article is the first part of a two-part review of the author's work in developing text mining procedures. The focus of Part I is Scientometrics. Novel approaches that were used to text mine the field of nanoscience/nanotechnology and the science and technology portfolio of China are described. A unique approach to identify documents related to an application theme (e.g., military-related, intelligence-related, space-related) rather than a discipline theme is also described in some detail.
