A topic model is a statistical model for discovering abstract topics that occur in a collection of documents. Intuitively, one would expect specific words to appear more frequently given that a document is about a particular topic. The study is about the application of this novel text mining approach to a set of journal articles of information systems in order to map the current topic structure of the discipline.
