In this paper we elaborate the opportunity of using natural language processing to analyze scientific content both, from a practical as well as a theoretical point of view. Firstly, we conducted a literature review to summarize the status quo of using natural language processing for analyzing scientific content. We could identify different approaches, e.g., with the aim of clustering and tagging publications or to summarize scientific papers. Secondly, we conducted a case study where we used our proposed natural language processing pipeline to analyze scientific content about computer vision available at the database IEEE. Our method helped us to identify emerging trends in the recent years and give an overview of the field of research.
