In this study, citation-weighted author profiling (CWAP) was developed as a new method that combines the advantages of both author profiling (AP) method and author co-citation analysis (ACA) method. In AP method, words reflect the author’s main topics of study. On the other hand, what words reflect in CWAP is topics that the author mainly influences. This enables detailed topic identification, which is the advantage of AP method, and at the same time determines the subjects in which the author has influence, as with ACA method. The proposed CWAP method was applied experimentally to analyze the intellectual structure of school library research in Korea. The results of the trial application revealed in detail what topics each author has a high influence on, and the change of influence over time was also clearly revealed. The CWAP method proposed in this study is expected to be used as a technique to grasp detailed topics from the viewpoint of research influence on which topics the author has been cited for, not as a research productivity perspective of how many papers the author has published.
