Automated classification of text has been studied by three major research communities, machine learning, information retrieval, and library science, each taking a different approach. The paper aims to study to what a degree the three communities explore others’ ideas, methods, findings. To that purpose we studied direct links (do authors from one community cite authors from another) and indirect links (using bibliographic coupling). Although the study is based on a small sample of 148 papers, the results indicate that the three communities do not exchange ideas to a great extent.
