|Temporal topic modeling of scholarly publications for future trend forecasting

|The volume of scholarly articles published every year has grown exponentially over the years. With these growths in both core and interdisciplinary areas of research, analyzing interesting research trends can be helpful for new researchers and organizations geared towards collaborative work. Existing approaches used unsupervised learning methods such as clustering to group articles with similar characteristics for topic discovery, with low accuracy. Efficient and fast topic discovery models and future trend forecasters can be helpful in building intelligent applications like recommender systems for scholarly articles. In this paper, a novel approach to automatically discover topics (latent factors) from a large set of text documents using association rule mining on frequent itemsets is proposed. Temporal correlation analysis is used for finding the correlation between a set of topics, for improved prediction. To predict the popularity of a topic in the near future, time series analysis based on a set of topic vectors is performed. For experimental validation of the proposed approach, a dataset composed of 17 years worth of computer science scholarly articles, published through standard IEEE conferences was used, and the proposed approach achieved meaningful results. � Springer International Publishing AG 2017.
