Abstract

Academic publications besides being key outputs of research, include bibliometric information, which when analyzed could reveal insights about researchers’ social network attributes, and institutional outputs. This data-driven project examined journal articles focusing on three fields (i.e., educational psychology, educational technology, and learning sciences) of learning and instruction to generate insights into research trends, researcher social networks and institutional cluster profiles. This presentation will describe the process of conducting semi-automatic content analysis and social network analysis on bibliometric data. The results of the study would be useful for academics, particularly budding researchers, who are identifying research areas of growth and authors to collaborate with or learn from.
