Topic-driven multi-type citation network analysis

  title={Topic-driven multi-type citation network analysis},
  author={Zaihan Yang and Liangjie Hong and Brian D. Davison},
In every scientific field, automated citation analysis enables the estimation of importance or reputation of publications and authors. [] Key Method We present in this paper a novel integrated probabilistic model which combines a content-based approach with a multi-type citation network which integrates citations among papers, authors, affiliations and publishing venues in a single model.

Figures and Tables from this paper

OverCite: Finding overlapping communities in citation network

An algorithm called OverCite is proposed, which can detect overlapping communities of authors, papers and venues simultaneously using the publication hypergraph and the citation network information, and is compared with two existing overlapping community detection algorithms, Clique Percolation Method and iLCD, applied on citation network.

On ranking relevant entities in heterogeneous networks using a language-based model

A novel algorithm is proposed, called BibRank, that estimates a joint relevance of documents and authors within a bibliographic network that ranks each type of entity using a score propagation algorithm with respect to the query topic and the structure of the underlying bi-type information entity network.

BibRank: a language-based model for co-ranking entities in bibliographic networks

A novel integrated ranking model, called BibRank, is proposed that aims at ranking both document and author entities in bibliographic networks by means of citation and authorship links and outperforms baseline ranking models with a significant improvement.

Measuring the Impact of Topic Drift in Scholarly Networks

It is found that authors who stick to one topic, produce a higher impact and gain more attention than authors who work on a single topic, and an evidence of significant impact of topic drift on career choices of researchers is shown.

Network Analysis of Design Automation Literature

A new unsupervised learning algorithm, propagation mergence (PM), was created to address identified shortcomings of existing methods and applied to study the existing DAC citation network, and investigated the DAC co-authorship network by identifying key authors and showing that the network structure exhibits small-world-network properties.

Co-Ranking Multiple Entities in a Heterogeneous Network: Integrating Temporal Factor and Users' Bookmarks

A novel approach that models the mutual reinforcing relationship among papers, authors and publication venues with due cognizance of publication time and the experimental results show that the proposed method outperforms the traditional methods.

Exploiting heterogeneous scientific literature networks to combat ranking bias: Evidence from the computational linguistics area

A new graph‐based ranking algorithm is proposed, MutualRank, that integrates mutual reinforcement relationships among networks of papers, researchers, and venues to achieve a more synthetic, accurate, and less‐biased ranking than previous methods.

Accuracy of inter-researcher similarity measures based on topical and social clues

This work argues the case for defining inter-researcher similarity measures building on publicly available metadata, and defines topical and social measures that are combined together to issue socio-topical recommendations.


A pair-wise based learningto-rank algorithm is introduced into the topic modeling process with the hypothesis that investigating and exploring the prior-knowledge on authors’ different importance over topics can help to achieve more accurate and cohesive topic modeling results.



Co-ranking Authors and Documents in a Heterogeneous Network

This paper proposes a novel method for co-ranking authors and their publications using several networks: the social network connecting the authors, the citation network connected the publications, as well as the authorship network that ties the previous two together.

Bibliometric impact measures leveraging topic analysis

The usefulness of topic models in measuring impact is demonstrated by applying a new phrase-based topic discovery model to a collection of 300,000 computer science publications, collected by the Rexa automatic citation indexing system.

Topical link analysis for web search

This work shows how to incorporate the topical model within both PageRank and HITS without affecting the overall property and still render insight into topic-level transition, and indicates that this technique outperforms other ranking approaches that incorporate textual analysis.

Mining a digital library for influential authors

A probabilistic model that ranks authors based on their influence in particular areas of scientific research is presented, which compares the performance of a topic model versus a smoothed language model and the number of major award winners in the resulting ranked list of researchers.

Using Citation Analysis for Finding Experts in Workgroups

Of the different approaches, the most effective method of performing expert finding in an academic workgroup is ranking workgroup members by citation indegree.

Citation analysis as a tool in journal evaluation.

In 1971, the Institute for Scientfic Information decided to undertake a systematic analysis of journal citation patterns across the whole of science and technology.

Object-level ranking: bringing order to Web objects

The experimental results show that PopRank can achieve significantly better ranking results than naively applying PageRank on the object graph, and the proposed efficient approaches to automatically decide these factors are proposed.
