Rapid quantitative monitoring of subject area (catalysis) term-base change dynamics over time by analysis of representative collections of texts with a known time reference was developed and tested. An L-gram representation of texts followed by selection of term-like chains of arbitrary length was used. The amount of the information to be analyzed by an expert was minimized. The data thus obtained can be used to identify key trends of subject area development.
