Text visualization method depends on the contents of documents to analyze patterns and abstract characters. Words set or semantic relationships often get involved. However, visualizing the large scholar text as an understandable view for users is a challenging. We propose an interactive model to describe the scholar information by statistical work and clustering results. The users’ diverse interests are concerned by customizing the parameters. And the interface is designed to access data easily. Our conception comes from our experiences designing the Scholar Browser for a university which displays the contribution of departments and topic similarity between them.
