Today, bibliographic digital libraries play an important role in helping members of academic community search for novel research. In particular, author disambiguation for citations is a major problem during the data integration and cleaning process, since author names are usually very ambiguous. For solving this problem, we proposed two kinds of(More)
The dramatic increase in the number of academic publications has led to a growing demand for efficient organization of the resources to meet researchers' specific needs. As a result, a number of network services have compiled databases from the public resources scattered over the Internet. Furthermore, because the publications utilize many different(More)
The most prevalent peer-to-peer (P2P) application till today is file sharing, and unstructured P2P networks can support inherent heterogeneity of peers, are highly resilient to peers' failures, and incur low overhead at peer arrivals and departures. Dynamic querying (DQ) is a new flooding technique which could estimate a proper time-to-live (TTL) value for(More)
Disambiguating the citation records of authors with the same name is a very interesting and challenging problem that affects many research and application fields, such as digital libraries. However, current bibliographic digital libraries like CiteSeer can not correctly disambiguate citation records because of two problems: information sparsity (citations(More)
In this paper we focus on building a large scale keyword search service over structured peer-to-peer (P2P) networks. Current state-of-the-art keyword search approaches for structured P2P systems are based on inverted list intersection. However, the biggest challenge in those approaches is that when the indices are distributed over peers, a simple query may(More)
In this paper, expert-finding problem is transformed to a classification issue. We build a knowledge database to represent the expertise characteristic of domain from web information constructed by collaborative intelligence, and an incremental learning method is proposed to update the database. Furthermore, results are ranked by measuring the correlation(More)
—Building an expert finding system is very important for many applications especially in the academic environment. Previous work uses e-mails or web pages as corpus to analyze the expertise for each expert. In this paper, we present an Expert Finding System, abbreviated as EFS to build experts' profiles by using their journal publications. For a given(More)
Dramatic increase in the number of academic publications has led to growing demand for efficient organization of the resources to meet researchers' needs.

However, publications by different conferences and journals adopt different(More)
Searching for information about a particular person is a common activity on search engines. However, current search engines do not provide any special function for search a person. Previous research has solved the problem by using additional background knowledge, such as a friend list, to cluster the searched Web pages. However, it is still difficult to(More)
Searching for experts on a given topic is a critical problem in many real-world situations, such as collab-orative finding. Even so, previous work has only fo-cused on searching for experts based on the appearance of topic query in an organization's documents, which means that the experts selected might not be suitable for the task at hand. To resolve this(More)
