Ok good question I havent explain!

Well,lets keep it simple for the begining. By analyzing the
keywords(which can also include the authors name) I mean,

1) investigate in which paper the keyword occur and how often
2) investigate if keywords occur together

X axis can show the paper title (or authors name)
y axis shows the keywords

if a keyword occurs more often in a paper then the dot on the graph
changes the color

if keywords occur together then a symbol the same symbol appears.
