Abstract

This paper presents the analysis and modelling of the literature of hypertext based on the ACM Hypertext conference series. This work explores a new paradigm of organizing and accessing the vast amount of interrelated information. In the first study, a semantic space is automatically derived and visualized based on all the full papers published in this series (1987 - 1998). The second study, an author co-citation analysis of nine conference proceedings in the series (1989 - 1998), maps this substantial literature of hypertext in its entirety and in three evenly distributed sub-periods. Specialties - major research fronts in the field of hypertext - are identified using a factor analysis. Author co-citation maps are automatically generated as virtual worlds on the WWW to help people explore the literary legacy of hypertext.
