[Objective] The paper tries to describe the evolutionary path of science and technology (S&T) policies using knowledge from documents generated in policy promotion. [Methods] We proposed a multi-index model with direct semantic relationship, direct co-occurrence relationship, in-direct co-occurrence relationship and link path attenuation index. The S&T policy entities and their relationships used in the proposed model were extracted from the policy texts. We described the S&T policy evolution paths along with time properties and then analyzed the structural features of policy entities and their relationship. [Results] We found the evolution paths of these policies at different stages, and 80% of the retrieved paths were existing in the real world. [Limitations] The proposed model relies on human comparison and interpretation. Besides, the sample size needs to be expanded. [Conclusions] This study reveals the evolutionary path of S&T policies based on related records. It expands the scope and depth of S&T policy analysis research.
