Abstract

In this paper, we discuss the document analysis as a data collection technique and a potential infrastructural instrument for developing countries particularly in the case of Turkey. Within this scope, the scientific studies made on this field in Turkey and placed in DAS scientific workshops were examined in the paper. While discussing these issues, the attendance of academicians from developing countries to Document Analysis Systems (DAS) workshops were observed in the study due to determining the potential inputs gained in the workshops and expected to be beneficial for the Turkeyís development. In the conclusion of the study, various suggestions about the studies that will be made for Turkey in the future were presented. The findings of the study expose that Turkey should be more aware of the benefits of using document analysis technique in scientific researches and also their stand-by potential for various infrastructural technologies of the sectorial frameworks.
