Chapter 13: Machine learning and deep learning for social science: a bibliometric approach
Restricted access

This research aims to provide the knowledge structure of machine learning and deep learning in the field of social science by performing bibliometric analysis with VOSviewer. To this end, a topic search related to machine learning and deep learning was conducted, and 3695 articles (2012-2021) were extracted from the social science citation index database of the Web of Science. Subsequently, we investigated productive authors, institutes, and countries/regions to identify major research forces. Also, we conducted co-authorship network analyses to explore knowledge collaborations at the author and national/regional levels. Moreover, we employed co-citation analyses for identifying highly cited journals and literature. Furthermore, we performed a keyword occurrence analysis to explore the main research topics. Overall, these analyses can contribute to understanding key contributing forces at the author, institute, country/region, and journal levels and offer insights into the knowledge structures and collaborations of machine learning and deep learning in social science.
