This paper explores the structure of research papers in software engineering. Using text mining, we study 35,391 software engineering (SE) papers from 34 leading SE venues over the last 25 years. These venues were divided, nearly evenly, between conferences and journals. An important aspect of this analysis is that it is fully automated and repeatable. To achieve that automation, we used topic modeling (with LDA) to mine 10 topics that represent much of the structure of contemporary SE. The 10 topics presented here should not be “set in stone” as the only topics worthy of study in SE. Rather our goal is to report that (a) text mining methods can detect large scale trends within our community; (b) those topic change with time; so (c) it is important to have automatic agents that can update our understanding of our community whenever new data arrives.
