In this paper, we analyze the literature on Formal Concept
Analysis (FCA) using FCA. We collected 702 papers published
between 2003-2009 mentioning Formal Concept Analysis in the
abstract. We developed a knowledge browsing environment to support
our literature analysis process. The pdf-files containing the papers were
converted to plain text and indexed by Lucene using a thesaurus
containing terms related to FCA research. We use the visualization
capabilities of FCA to explore the literature, to discover and
conceptually represent the main research topics in the FCA community.
As a case study, we zoom in on the 140 papers on using FCA in knowledge discovery and data mining and give an extensive overview of the contents of this literature.
