Co-author Recommender System
Modern bibliographic databases contain significant amount of information on publication activities of research communities. Researchers regularly encounter challenging task of selecting a co-author for joint research publication or searching for authors, whose papers are worth reading. We propose a new recommender system for finding possible collaborator with respect to research interests. The recommendation problem is formulated as a link prediction within the co-authorship network. The network is derived from the bibliographic database and enriched by the information on research papers obtained from Scopus and other
publication ranking systems.
