    Abstract

    Although there are many research works focused on scientific community discovery and researcher profiling, it is still a challenge to track and assess the research development for an individual researcher or a research group over time. In this study, we seek to model and quantify an individual's research work outcome during his/her research career. A temporal tracking model is introduced to represent research development for both an individual and a group along the time. Furthermore, assessing measures are proposed to depict how to quantify a research group's outcomes by its members' contribution. Based on our model, a research topic analyzing approach is proposed to extract the topics covered by a group and discover the group's research pattern. The analyzed output is helpful for a researcher to pursue his/her scientific life or find collaboration opportunities.
