Forming Socio-intellectual Capital: The Case of LINKS

Daphne R. Raban, Dorit Geifman

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapterpeer-review


This chapter traces the formation of socio-intellectual value by the LINKS research center, which focuses on studying the co-creation of knowledge in spontaneous and designed learning environments, in the community at large and at educational facilities. By analyzing academic publications before and during LINKS activity using topic modeling, we identify evolving research areas. Topic modeling is a statistical algorithm which extracts the underlying thematic structure of a collection of documents, automatically identifying latent topical structures within the documents.
