About the Lecture:
Knowledge graph, also known as bibliometric method, is one of the important methods of bibliometric review. This research method is widely used to analyze the dynamic nature of literature in specific research fields (Chen, 2006). It uses various analysis tools to graphically depict the structure and evolution of published research (Börner et al., 2010; Chen, 2006). Specifically, the knowledge graph is a graphical method that describes the mining, analysis, construction, drawing, and display of knowledge resources and their carriers through visualization technology (Chen, 2009). CiteSpace is a visualization tool specially used for academic literature analysis. Its main function is to detect hot topics and their evolution in a discipline or field based on co-citation analysis theory and specific algorithms, thereby revealing the research frontier and its changes in the evolution of the subject field trend. This study collected all the big data related research in business research, and used Citespace to analyze the quantitative data in its literature records and obtained visual networks (such as co-cited networks, cooperative networks, and keyword co-occurrences analysis, etc.). This lecture will focus on how to predict future research directions based on the literature evolution and development process of big data literature.
