Abstract

A term map offers a visualization of a network of terms that co-occur in scientific publications. Term maps are usually created based on the titles and abstracts of publications. In this paper, we explore the use of full-text data for creating term maps. We create and compare a series of term maps based on the full text of publications in Journal of Informetrics. We use our results to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of different approaches for creating term maps.
