In this pilot study we examine the performance of text-based profiling in recovering a set of validated inventor-author links.
In a first step we match patents and publications solely based on their similarity in content. Next, we compare inventor and
author names on the highest ranked matches for the occurrence of name matches. Finally, we compare these candidate matches
with the names listed in a validated set of inventor-author names. Our text-based profile methodology performs significantly
better than a random matching of patents and publications, suggesting that text-based profiling is a valuable complementary
tool to the name searches used in previous studies.

Summary In the present study full-text analysis and traditional bibliometric methods are combined to improve the efficiency of the individual methods in the mapping of science. The methodology is applied to map research papers from a special issue of Scientometrics. The outcomes substantiate that such hybrid methodology can be applied to both research evaluation and information retrieval. The subject classification given by the guest-editors of the special issue is used for validation purposes. Because of the limited number of papers underlying the study the paper is considered a pilot study that will be extended in a later study on the basis of a larger corpus.
