Intention usually refers to the intention to achieve a certain purpose, which is the realistic power to motivate people to act. At present, with the development of the Internet and social media, the scope of human activities is becoming larger and deeper. In the academic circle, the cooperation between scientific research workers is becoming closer and closer, and the activities of human beings and even the cooperative behaviors of scientific research workers contain the intentions of individuals or organizations. By extracting scientific citation data on the network, this paper constructs a spatial-temporal related scientific collaboration network, proposes a spatial-temporal distribution method of resources, and analyses and evaluates the behavioral intention of collaboration network. It mainly includes the visualization method of spatial-temporal distribution of resources of paper information, the spatial-temporal network modeling of paper cooperative intention, the analysis of intention evaluation model and so on. Finally, the problems and possible challenges in the future research are prospected.
