Description

ICT4D research has gained prominence in the past few decades. This field has a unique context in terms of technology transfer, social embeddedness, and transformative interventions. In this paper, we investigate the key insights and prominent themes that define the ICT4D field. We explore thematic areas by analyzing abstracts of articles published between 2000 and 2017. We preprocess abstracts, visualize using VOSviewer and perform Topic Modeling using Latent Dirichlet Allocation algorithm for text analysis. We identify and interpret the dominant themes and find key insights that define and identify the ICT4D field.
