以詞語共現網絡分析探勘資訊傳播學領域的研究主題與關係

本文摘要

本文提出一個新的領域分析方法探勘資訊傳播學領域的重要
研究主題,以及主題之間的關係。我們從國內相關系所碩士論文
的文字內容中抽取出具有主題性的詞語以及它們的共現關係,建
立一個詞語共現網絡來進行分析。本文探討了這個網絡的整體性
質,並且從網絡上確認了可以視為是重要研究主題的詞語叢集,
也以視覺化的方式呈現這些研究主題和它們之間的關係。研究結
果發現:雖然這個網絡的密度相當疏鬆,但它的特徵路徑長度與
平均叢集係數顯示這個網絡符合小世界網絡的特徵,這個現象表
示資訊傳播學領域有較多元而分散的研究主題,並且這些主題相
互之間有寬鬆的重疊情形。此外,抽取出來的主題與關係也很明
顯地表現這個領域紮根於傳播學、圖書資訊學、及資訊與通訊科
技的研究與實務。
This paper reports on a new method for exploring the prominent
research topics and the relations between them in the field of
information communication studies. Analyzing the term co-occurrence
network composed of topical terms extracted from the masters’ theses of the related graduate schools in Taiwan, this study was able
to identify prominent clusters of topical terms, which represented
important research topics in the field. Visual representations of the
topical relationships were also provided. The study findings reveal that,
although the network was of low density, its characteristic path length
and the average clustering coefficient indicated that it had the features
of a small-world network. This suggests that the research topics in this
field were highly diverse and dispersed, while some overlaps existed
among the prominent topical areas. In addition, the identified topics and
relationships also revealed the field’s roots in communication studies,
library and information science, and information and communication
technologies.
