Hybrid solutions – the best of all possible worlds?

Wolfgang Glänzel, Bart Thijs


Recently the combination of text- and citation-based methods is increasingly applied to structural analysis since they compensate several severe shortcomings of their individual components while the combination takes full advantage of their individual strengths. In the present study we will focus on three major application fields, particularly, (1) document clustering, (2) topic representation and (3) subject delineation in order to discuss the real strength of this paradigmatic approach in a coherent system of the structural analysis of document spaces for the application to scientific information, scientometrics and research evaluation.
