1Kim, M. ; Baek, I. ; Song, M.: Topic diffusion analysis of a weighted citation network in biomedical literature.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 69(2018) no.2, S.329-342.
Abstract: In this study, we propose a framework for detecting topic evolutions in weighted citation networks. Citation networks are important in studying knowledge flows; however, citation network analysis has primarily focused on binary networks in which the individual citation influences of each cited paper in a citing paper are considered identical, even though not all cited papers have a significant influence on the cited publication. Accordingly, it is necessary to build and analyze a citation network comprising scholarly publications that notably impact one another, thus identifying topic evolution in a more precise manner. To measure the strength of citation influence and identify paper topics, we employ a citation influence topic model primarily based on topical inheritance between cited and citing papers. Using scholarly publications in the field of the protein p53 as a case study, we build a citation network, filter it using citation influence values, and examine the diffusion of topics not only in the field but also in the subfields of p53.

2Song, M. ; Kang, K. ; An, J.Y.: Investigating drug-disease interactions in drug-symptom-disease triples via citation relations.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 69(2018) no.11, S.1355-1368.
Abstract: With the growth in biomedical literature, the necessity of extracting useful information from the literature has increased. One approach to extracting biomedical knowledge involves using citation relations to discover entity relations. The assumption is that citation relations between any two articles connect knowledge entities across the articles, enabling the detection of implicit relationships among biomedical entities. The goal of this article is to examine the characteristics of biomedical entities connected via intermediate entities using citation relations aided by text mining. Based on the importance of symptoms as biomedical entities, we created triples connected via citation relations to identify drug-disease pairs with shared symptoms as intermediate entities. Drug-disease interactions built via citation relations were compared with co-occurrence-based interactions. Several types of analyses were adopted to examine the properties of the extracted entity pairs by comparing them with drug-disease interaction databases. We attempted to identify the characteristics of drug-disease pairs through citation relations in association with biomedical entities. The results showed that the citation relation-based approach resulted in diverse types of biomedical entities and preserved topical consistency. In addition, drug-disease pairs identified only via citation relations are interesting for clinical trials when they are examined using BITOLA.

3Lee, K. ; Kim, S.Y. ; Kim, E.H.-J. ; Song, M.: Comparative evaluation of bibliometric content networks by tomographic content analysis : an application to Parkinson's disease.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 68(2017) no.5, S.1295-1307.
Abstract: To understand the current state of a discipline and to discover new knowledge of a certain theme, one builds bibliometric content networks based on the present knowledge entities. However, such networks can vary according to the collection of data sets relevant to the theme by querying knowledge entities. In this study we classify three different bibliometric content networks. The primary bibliometric network is based on knowledge entities relevant to a keyword of the theme, the secondary network is based on entities associated with the lower concepts of the keyword, and the tertiary network is based on entities influenced by the theme. To explore the content and properties of these networks, we propose a tomographic content analysis that takes a slice-and-dice approach to analyzing the networks. Our findings indicate that the primary network is best suited to understanding the current knowledge on a certain topic, whereas the secondary network is good at discovering new knowledge across fields associated with the topic, and the tertiary network is appropriate for outlining the current knowledge of the topic and relevant studies.

4Song, M. ; Kim, S.Y. ; Lee, K.: Ensemble analysis of topical journal ranking in bioinformatics.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 68(2017) no.6, S.1564-1583.
Abstract: Journal rankings, frequently determined by the journal impact factor or similar indices, are quantitative measures for evaluating a journal's performance in its discipline, which is presently a major research thrust in the bibliometrics field. Recently, text mining was adopted to augment journal ranking-based evaluation with the content analysis of a discipline taking a time-variant factor into consideration. However, previous studies focused mainly on a silo analysis of a discipline using either citation-or content-oriented approaches, and no attempt was made to analyze topical journal ranking and its change over time in a seamless and integrated manner. To address this issue, we propose a journal-time-topic model, an extension of Dirichlet multinomial regression, which we applied to the field of bioinformatics to understand journal contribution to topics in a field and the shift of topic trends. The journal-time-topic model allows us to identify which journals are the major leaders in what topics and the manner in which their topical focus. It also helps reveal an interesting distinct pattern in the journal impact factor of high- and low-ranked journals. The study results shed a new light for understanding topic specific journal rankings and shifts in journals' concentration on a subject.

5An, J. ; Kim, N. ; Kan, M.-Y. ; Kumar Chandrasekaran, M. ; Song, M.: Exploring characteristics of highly cited authors according to citation location and content.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 68(2017) no.8, S.1975-1988.
Abstract: Big Science and cross-disciplinary collaborations have reshaped the intellectual structure of research areas. A number of works have tried to uncover this hidden intellectual structure by analyzing citation contexts. However, none of them analyzed by document logical structures such as sections. The two major goals of this study are to find characteristics of authors who are highly cited section-wise and to identify the differences in section-wise author networks. This study uses 29,158 of research articles culled from the ACL Anthology, which hosts articles on computational linguistics and natural language processing. We find that the distribution of citations across sections is skewed and that a different set of highly cited authors share distinct academic characteristics, according to their citation locations. Furthermore, the author networks based on citation context similarity reveal that the intellectual structure of a domain differs across different sections.

6Song, M. ; Jeong, Y.K. ; Kim, H.J.: Identifying the topology of the K-pop video community on YouTube : a combined co-comment analysis approach.
In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 66(2015) no.12, S.2580-2595.
Abstract: YouTube is a successful social network that people use to upload, watch, and comment on videos. We believe comments left on these videos can provide insight into user interests, but to this point have not been used to map out a specific video community. Our study investigates whether and how user commenting behavior impacts the topology of the K-pop video community through analysis of co-commenting behavior on these videos. We apply a traditional author cocitation analysis to this behavior, in a process we refer to as co-comment analysis, to detect the topology of this community. This involves: a) an analysis of user co-comments to elicit the inclination of user homophily within the community; b) an analysis of user co-comments, weighted frequency of co-comments, to detect user interests in the community; and c) an analysis of user co-comments, weighted sentiment scores, to capture user opinions by polarity. The results indicate that users who comment on specific K-pop videos also tend to comment on topically similar YouTube videos. We also find that the number of comments made by users correlates with the degree of positivity of their comments. Conversely, users who comment negatively on K-pop videos are not inclined to form specific user groups, but rather present only their opinions individually.

In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 65(2014) no.2, S.352-371.
Abstract: Bioinformatics is a fast-growing field based on the optimal use of "big data" gathered in genomic, proteomics, and functional genomics research. In this paper, we conduct a comprehensive and in-depth bibliometric analysis of the field of bioinformatics by extracting citation data from PubMed Central full-text. Citation data for the period 2000 to 2011, comprising 20,869 papers with 546,245 citations, was used to evaluate the productivity and influence of this emerging field. Four measures were used to identify productivity; most productive authors, most productive countries, most productive organizations, and most popular subject terms. Research impact was analyzed based on the measures of most cited papers, most cited authors, emerging stars, and leading organizations. Results show the overall trends between the periods 2000 to 2003 and 2004 to 2007 were dissimilar, while trends between the periods 2004 to 2007 and 2008 to 2011 were similar. In addition, the field of bioinformatics has undergone a significant shift, co-evolving with other biomedical disciplines.

In: Journal of the Association for Information Science and Technology. 65(2014) no.9, S.1820-1833.
Abstract: Traditional citation analysis has been widely applied to detect patterns of scientific collaboration, map the landscapes of scholarly disciplines, assess the impact of research outputs, and observe knowledge transfer across domains. It is, however, limited, as it assumes all citations are of similar value and weights each equally. Content-based citation analysis (CCA) addresses a citation's value by interpreting each one based on its context at both the syntactic and semantic levels. This paper provides a comprehensive overview of CAA research in terms of its theoretical foundations, methodical approaches, and example applications. In addition, we highlight how increased computational capabilities and publicly available full-text resources have opened this area of research to vast possibilities, which enable deeper citation analysis, more accurate citation prediction, and increased knowledge discovery.

In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. 64(2013) no.5, S.1065-1075.
Abstract: Interdisciplinary research has been attracting more attention in recent decades. In this article, we compare the similarity between scientific research domains and quantifying the temporal similarities of domains. We narrowed our study to three research domains: information retrieval (IR), database (DB), and World Wide Web (W3), because the rapid development of the W3 domain substantially attracted research efforts from both IR and DB domains and introduced new research questions to these two areas. Most existing approaches either employed a content-based technique or a cocitation or coauthorship network-based technique to study the development trend of a research area. In this work, we proposed an effective way to quantify the similarities among different research domains by incorporating content similarity and coauthorship network similarity. Experimental results on DBLP (DataBase systems and Logic Programming) data related to IR, DB, and W3 domains showed that the W3 domain was getting closer to both IR and DB whereas the distance between IR and DB remained relatively constant. In addition, comparing to IR and W3 with the DB domain, the DB domain was more conservative and evolved relatively slower.
10Ho, S.M. ; Bieber, M. ; Song, M. ; Zhang, X.: Seeking beyond with IntegraL : a user study of sense-making enabled by anchor-based virtual integration of library systems.
In: Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology. 64(2013) no.9, S.1927-1945.
Abstract: This article presents a user study showing the effectiveness of a linked-based, virtual integration infrastructure that gives users access to relevant online resources, empowering them to design an information-seeking path that is specifically relevant to their context. IntegraL provides a lightweight approach to improve and augment search functionality by dynamically generating context-focused "anchors" for recognized elements of interest generated by library services. This article includes a description of how IntegraL's design supports users' information-seeking behavior. A full user study with both objective and subjective measures of IntegraL and hypothesis testing regarding IntegraL's effectiveness of the user's information-seeking experience are described along with data analysis, implications arising from this kind of virtual integration, and possible future directions.
