Abstract:Author cocitation analysis (ACA) plays a significant role in mapping knowledge domains. However, it has been criticized to be relatively less informative because topic- and semantic-level information of citations has seldom been integrated into ACA. This poster aims to improve the traditional ACA by combining topical information of cocited authors with author cocited counts, which is called topic-based ACA. Author-Conference-Topic (ACT) model is adopted in this research to calculate topic distributions of authors. Compared with traditional ACA, topic-based ACA shows a better clustering ability in visualization and mines more details in knowledge domain mappings.
