His primary areas of study are Data science, Emerging technologies, Bibliometrics, Domain and Technology forecasting. The study incorporates disciplines such as Key, Scientometrics, Set and Identification in addition to Data science. His Emerging technologies research includes themes of Technological change, Marketing, Technological evolution and Big data.

His research in Technological change intersects with topics in Technology assessment and Risk analysis. His Bibliometrics study incorporates themes from Citation analysis, Argument, Innovation management and Field. His study in Technology forecasting is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Social change, Futures studies and Library science.

Between 2017 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Insights into relationships between disruptive technology/innovation and emerging technology: A bibliometric perspective (42 citations)
  • Insights into relationships between disruptive technology/innovation and emerging technology: A bibliometric perspective (42 citations)
  • Does deep learning help topic extraction? A kernel k-means clustering method with word embedding (28 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Law
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Social science

Alan L. Porter mainly focuses on Data science, Emerging technologies, Bibliometrics, Domain and Big data. In his works, he conducts interdisciplinary research on Data science and Modular design. His work carried out in the field of Emerging technologies brings together such families of science as Technological change, Citation impact, Marketing, Field and Sociology of scientific knowledge.

The Bibliometrics study combines topics in areas such as Multidisciplinary approach, Metadata, Field, Argument and Emerging markets. His Domain research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Theoretical computer science, Parsing, Operationalization, Frontier and Key. Alan L.
