Graph mining is an important research vertical and recently the usage of graphs has become increasingly imperative in modeling problematic complex structures such as electrical circuits, chemical compounds, protein structures, bioinformatics, social networks, workflow diagrams, and XML documents. Plethora of graph mining algorithms has been developed and the primary objective of this paper is to present a detailed survey regarding the approaches and techniques employed to find the issues and complexities involved.
