Ding, Ying; Chowdhury, Gobinda G.; Foo, Schubert
Information Processing & Management, v37 n6 p817-42 2001
This study maps the intellectual structure of the field of Information Retrieval (IR) during the period of 1987-1997. Co-word analysis was employed to reveal patterns and trends in the IR field by measuring the association strengths of terms representative of relevant publications or other texts produced in IR. Results show that the IR field has some established research themes and it also changes rapidly to embrace new themes. (Author/AEF)
