Abstract We present a new method of visualizing textual data that brings on evolutionary perspective to management research. The method uses two text analysis software applications, Leximoncer and Discursis to provide visualizations of the semantic content and temporal structure of lime series data. We use the method fo mop discursive change in the history of tdeos in a journal Data used in this analysis is comprised of abstracts of empirical articles published in the journal, Monpgemenf Communication Ouorterly, over twenty years. findings demonstrate. the turbulent nature of discursive change, and show how if is structured info punctuated equilibria with phose transitions separating successive discursive regimes. In particular, our findings identify the period of scholarship based on a discursive and cnlical orientation and the transition point when if began.
