A Recommender System to Support the Scholarly Communication Process

  title={A Recommender System to Support the Scholarly Communication Process},
  author={Michael A. Rodriguez and David W. Allen and Joshua Shinavier and Gary Ebersole},
The number of researchers, articles, journals, conferences, funding opportunities, and other such scholarly resources continues to grow every year and at an increasing rate. Many services have emerged to support scholars in navigating particular aspects of this resource-rich environment. Some commercial publishers provide recommender and alert services for the articles and journals in their digital libraries. Similarly, numerous noncommercial social bookmarking services have emerged for…

Context-Aware and Sequential Pattern Mining based recommendations for Research Papers: A Hybrid Approach
A novel method for research paper recommendations that incorporates the benefits of collective filtering (CF), context-awareness, and sequential pattern mining (SPM) to propose research papers to scholars in a hybrid manner is introduced.
How Contextual Data Influences User Experience with Scholarly Recommender Systems: An Empirical Framework
A framework to explore how contexts influence UX with Scholarly recommender systems and identifies relevant contexts to be incorporated in the UX is proposed and can serve as a foundation for further theoretical and empirical investigation.
Meta-analysis of evaluation methods and metrics used in context-aware scholarly recommender systems
Meta-analyses of the evaluation methods and metrics of 67 studies related to context-aware scholarly recommender systems from the years 2000 to 2014 show that offline evaluation methods are more commonly used compared to online and user studies, with the maximum rate of success.


An algorithm to determine peer-reviewers
An algorithm to automatically determine the most appropriate reviewers for a manuscript by way of a co-authorship network data structure and a relative-rank particle-swarm algorithm is presented.
Algorithms for estimating relative importance in networks
This paper defines a general framework and a number of different algorithms, building on ideas from social networks, graph theory, Markov models, and Web graph analysis, which can be used to study relative importance in real-world networks including a network of interactions among September 11th terrorists.
Automatic metadata generation using associative networks
The general framework for building associative networks, an algorithm for disseminating metadata through such networks, and the results of an experiment and validation of the proposed method using a standard bibliographic dataset are discussed.
A Constrained Spreading Activation Approach to Collaborative Filtering
A graph-based representation of the problem domain, and a constrained spreading activation approach to effect retrieval, has as good, or better, performance than a traditional collaborative filtering approach using Pearson Correlation.
Grammar-based random walkers in semantic networks
Usage derived recommendations for a video digital library
Information retrieval by constrained spreading activation in semantic networks
A practical ontology for the large-scale modeling of scholarly artifacts and their usage
This article presents a scholarly ontology that was engineered to represent those classes for which large-scale bibliographic and usage data exists, supports usage research, and whose instantiation is scalable to the order of 50 million articles along with their associated artifacts.
Exposing multi-relational networks to single-relational network analysis algorithms
Towards usage-based impact metrics: first results from the mesur project.
Some major challenges related to aggregating and processing usage data are described, and preliminary results obtained from analyzing the MESUR reference data set confirm the intrinsic value of scholarly usage data, and support the feasibility of reliable and valid usage-based metrics of scholarly impact.
