Abstract—Identification of meaningful patterns and trends in large volumes of text data is an important task in various fields. In the present study we crawled the keywords from the abstracts in IIE Transactions, one of the representative journals in the field of Industrial Engineering from 1969 to 2011. We applied a low-dimensional embedding method, clustering analysis, association rule, and social network analysis to find meaningful associative patterns of the keywords frequently appeared in the paper.
Index Terms—Data mining, text mining, clustering, association rule, social network analysis
