In the last 16 years, more than 200 research articles were published about research-paper recommender systems. [...] Key Result We identified three potential reasons for the ambiguity of the results. (A) Several evaluations had limitations. They were based on strongly pruned datasets, few participants in user studies, or did not use appropriate baselines. (B) Some authors provided little information about their algorithms, which makes it difficult to re-implement the approaches. Consequently, researchers use…Expand
Scientific Paper Recommendation: A Survey
TLDR
The purpose of this survey is to provide comprehensive reviews on the scholarly paper recommendation, including cold start, sparsity, scalability, privacy, serendipity, and unified scholarly data standards. Expand
A Hybrid Approach Toward Research Paper Recommendation Using Centrality Measures and Author Ranking
TLDR
The proposed method creates a multilevel citation and relationship network of authors in which the citation network uses the structural relationship between the papers to extract significant papers, and authors’ collaboration network finds key authors from those papers. Expand
A graph-based taxonomy of citation recommendation models
TLDR
This survey explores the state-of-the-art citation recommendation models which are explored using the following seven criteria: platform used, data factors/features, data representation methods, methodologies and models, recommendation types, problems addressed, and personalization. Expand
A Scalable Hybrid Research Paper Recommender System for Microsoft Academic
TLDR
There is a strong correlation between participant scores and the similarity rankings produced by the large scale hybrid paper recommender system but that additional focus needs to be put towards improving recommender precision, particularly for content based recommendations. Expand
Venue Recommendation Based on Paper’s Title and Co-authors Network
Information overload has always been a remarkable topic in scientific researches, and one of the available approaches in this field is employing recommender systems. With the spread of these systemsExpand
Exploring the Proportion of Content Represented by the Metadata of Research Articles
TLDR
This research explored the significant portion of the full content contained by the Metadata of research articles and implemented the TF-IDF over Metadata and full content and considered the intersection of key terms. Expand
Towards reproducibility in recommender-systems research
TLDR
The recommender-system community needs to survey other research fields and learn from them, find a common understanding of reproducibility, identify and understand the determinants that affect reproduCibility, conduct more comprehensive experiments, and establish best-practice guidelines for recommender -systems research. Expand
Building recommender systems for scholarly information
TLDR
It is shown how implicit user feedback and collaborative filtering are used to generate the recommendations for Mendeley Suggest, and it is found that among senior academics, content-based recommendations from recent activity had comparable performance to collaborative filtering. Expand
A review of citation recommendation: from textual content to enriched context
TLDR
This review is conducted to identify the information and methods used for recommendations recently, and introduces definitions of the task, recommending factors along with the corresponding problems and some application platforms. Expand
Hybrid recommender systems: A systematic literature review
TLDR
This systematic literature review presents the state of the art in hybrid recommender systems of the last decade and addresses the most relevant problems considered and present the associated data mining and recommendation techniques used to overcome them. Expand

Research paper recommender system evaluation: a quantitative literature survey
TLDR
It is currently not possible to determine which recommendation approaches for academic literature recommendation are the most promising, but there is little value in the existence of more than 80 approaches if the best performing approaches are unknown. Expand
The Architecture and Datasets of Docear's Research Paper Recommender System
TLDR
The architecture of the recommender system and four datasets are introduced, which are a unique source of information to enable, for instance, research on collaborative filtering, content‐based filtering, and the use of reference‐management and mind‐mapping software. Expand
Research paper recommendation with topic analysis
  • C. Pan, Wenxin Li
  • Computer Science
  • 2010 International Conference On Computer Design and Applications
  • 2010
TLDR
By using topic model techniques to make topic analysis on research papers, a thematic similarity measurement is introduced into a modified version of item-based recommendation approach to alleviate the cold start problem in research paper recommendation. Expand
A Multi-criteria Collaborative Filtering Approach for Research Paper Recommendation in Papyres
TLDR
Papyres employs a Hybrid recommender system that combines both Content-based and Collaborative filtering to help researchers locate research material, and a multi-criteria approach is used to evaluate the articles, allowing researchers to denote their interest in specific parts of articles. Expand
A source independent framework for research paper recommendation
TLDR
This paper proposes a novel source independent framework for research paper recommendation that requires as input only a single research paper and generates several potential queries by using terms in that paper, which are then submitted to existing Web information sources that hold research papers. Expand
A task-focused literature recommender system for digital libraries
TLDR
An original study that has produced a novel way to combine information retrieval, common citation analysis, and coauthor relationship analysis techniques to find relevant and high‐quality articles for recommendation in a digital library is described. Expand
Research Paper Recommender Systems: A Subspace Clustering Approach
TLDR
A scalable subspace clustering algorithm (SCuBA) that tackles the large number of dimensions and the sparseness of the data in the research paper domain and performs better than the traditional collaborative filtering approaches when recommending research papers. Expand
Looking for "Good" Recommendations: A Comparative Evaluation of Recommender Systems
TLDR
An empirical study that involved 210 users and considered seven RSs on the same dataset that use different baseline and state-of-the-art recommendation algorithms was discussed, measuring the user's perceived quality of each of them, focusing on accuracy and novelty of recommended items, and on overall users' satisfaction. Expand
Concept-Based Document Recommendations for CiteSeer Authors
TLDR
A concept-based algorithm that recommends research papers of potential interest to authors known to the CiteSeer database based on similarities between user profile and profiles for documents in the collection and an algorithm for computing the similarity between the user profiles and document profiles using a tree-edit distance measure is introduced. Expand
A graph-based recommender system for digital library
TLDR
This paper reports how the idea of using a graph-based recommender system that naturally combines the content-based and collaborative approaches to improve recommendation quality was tested, by which it was found that the system gained improvement with respect to both precision and recall. Expand
