Psychology of theology has a great deal of scope and subcategories, and the study of the relationship between these sections as well as the dimensions and structure of each of its subclasses can help to understand the structure of this knowledge. for this reason, this study has been done to explore the Intellectual Structure of the Positive Psychology studies. The present research is applied in a practical way. It uses scientometric techniques and, in particular, the both occurrences of vocabulary method and text mining, to explore the internal structure and subject relations of positive psychological studies. The community of this research is the articles of the positive psychology field indexed at the Scopus base. The total number of articles in the period from 2000 to 2012 was 1086 articles. By extracting related terms from the title, abstract and keywords of the articles and applying the methods of text and rooting, a coincidence matrix with 43 × 43 dimensions was created. Results: The results of this study showed that among the 7 optimized clusters, the cluster 2 with 10 words and the cluster 4 with 9 words, are recognized as the main clusters. The cluster 5 has the largest number of main subjects among the selected concepts, and clusters 2 and 1 have the least distances, which indicates that the connection between the main and minor issues in these clusters is greater. In contrast to cluster 7, it has the greatest distance from most clusters, indicating at least the similarity of cluster threads with other cluster themes. Conclusion: Based on this, the most correlation was found between the internal structure of positive psychology between the concepts of adult, construct, individu, positive psychology and strength in cluster 1 with the concepts effects, chang, develop, educ, emot, model, optim, posit, role and support in cluster 2 is established. In this regard, it is anticipated that cluster 7 with its concepts will become an independent study area in the future.
