Using Full-text Content of Academic Articles to Build a Methodology Taxonomy of Information Science in China

  title={Using Full-text Content of Academic Articles to Build a Methodology Taxonomy of Information Science in China},
  author={Heng Zhang and Chengzhi Zhang},
Research on the construction of traditional information science methodology taxonomy is mostly conducted manually. From the limited corpus, researchers have attempted to summarize some of the research methodology entities into several abstract levels (generally three levels); however, they have been unable to provide a more granular hierarchy. Moreover, updating the methodology taxonomy is traditionally a slow process. In this study, we collected full-text academic papers related to information… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Extraction of Thesis Research Conclusion Sentences in Academic Literature
This research attempts to establish a practical model of extracting conclusion sentences from academic literature by using SciBERT, and results show that SciberT is more suitable for extracting thesis conclusion sentences and the optimal F1-value is 77.51%.


Information science abstracts: Tracking the literature of information science. Part 2: A new taxonomy for information science
The taxonomy resulting from this research employs the concepts, definition, and map of information science previously developed and presents them in an organized hierarchical view of the field and thus makes a significant contribution to information science.
Deriving concept hierarchies from text
This paper presents a means of automatically deriving a hierarchical organization of concepts from a set of documents without use of training data or standard clustering techniques, using a type of co-occurrence known as subsumption.
FTS : Faceted Taxonomy Construction and Search for Scientific Publications
This work developed a network-based, unified search and navigation platform, called FTS (Faceted Taxonomy Construction and Search), to ease query development and facilitate intelligence exploration in a large text repository, focused on scientific publications.
Words and Facts: Textual Analysis—Topic-Centred Methods for Social Scientists
This contribution explains how complex statistical methods such as factorial correspondence analysis, both descending hierarchical classification (Alceste, Topics) and ascending hierarchical
TaxoGen: Unsupervised Topic Taxonomy Construction by Adaptive Term Embedding and Clustering
The method, TaxoGen, uses term embeddings and hierarchical clustering to construct a topic taxonomy in a recursive fashion and consists of an adaptive spherical clustering module for allocating terms to proper levels when splitting a coarse topic into fine-grained ones.
A Taxonomy for English Nouns and Verbs
The definition texts of a machine-readable pocket dictionary were analyzed to determine the disambiguated word sense of the kernel terms of each word sense being defined, proving that the dictionary offers a fundamentally consistent description of word meaning.
