Hung, J. (2012). Trends of e-learning research from 2000 to 2008: Use of text mining and bibliometrics. British Journal of Educational Technology, 43(1), 5-16.
Out of 689 articles gathered electronically from 289 of the most prestigious academic journals, this experiment found interesting trends within the e-learning research findings published between the years 2000 and 2008. Using text mining, bibliometrics, and content analysis, Hung and his team were able to determine the top subjects, the leading submission countries, and which growing topics require further research and publication spots.
