identifying Research Strength, Finding research collaborators from academic publication abstracts?

i have academic publication abstracts by authors from different organizations. I am looking for a semi-auto method to identify areas each organization is good at, and locate which researchers are experts in these areas so potentially can work together in these areas.

 

Is it a good idea to use RapidMiner to do this?

 

Thanks,

Re: identifying Research Strength, Finding research collaborators from academic publication abstract

I think it is. In 2010 at the first RapidMiner Convention I sat in a talk where the Computer Scientist used RapidMiner and it's Text Mining extension to parse medical drug interaction research paper abstracts, extract keywords, and then compare them to a list of known drugs. It was built as a decision support system to help Doctors quickly indentify possible side effects of prescribing a patient a new drug that already is taking other drugs. Really cool.
