Abstract: Author Co-Citation Analysis (ACA) provides a principled way of analyzing research communities, based on how often authors are cited together in scientific publications. In this paper, we present preliminary results based on ACA to analyze and visualize research communities in the area of technology enhanced learning, focusing on publicly available citation and conference information provided through CiteseerX and DBLP. We describe our approach to collecting, organizing and analyzing appropriate data, as well as the problems which have to be solved in this process. We also provide a thorough interpretation of the TEL research clusters obtained, which provide insights into these research communities. The results are promising, and show the method’s potential as regards mapping and visualizing TEL research communities, making researchers aware of the different research communities relevant for technology enhanced learning, and thus better able to bridge communities wherever needed.
