Identification, location and temporal evolution of topics
Data and algorithm – comparison of approaches
This workshop builds on a series of workshops in TD1210 in Berlin, Amsterdam, Istanbul about research diversity and the metrical challenge to delineate topics. At the Budapest workshop, experts are invited to present their approaches to identify and trace topic evolution over time. Among them is a group of researchers (Same data, different results – special session at ISSI 2015) who will present their insights concerning different methods for topic delineation, and ways to compare them to a wider audience. Three additional topics will be addressed: How to organise a topic delineation challenge in the metrics community? How to best engage with experts in the evaluation of topics maps and their evolution? How can the science of topic delineation, and, science mapping in general, better inform taxonomies of scientific research used in research evaluation? The latter points are of particular interest for the social sciences and humanities, which are increasingly exposed to metric based evaluative practices.
The workshop is supported by the COST Action TD1210 Knowescape, and the FP7 Project Impact-EV.
