Abstract:Scientists continue to find challenges in the ever increasing amount of information that has been produced on a world wide scale, for the last decades. Research ideas are generally developed based on high quality citations that, given today's very large collections of published articles, may be difficult to find. Specifically, when writing a paper, an author searches for the most relevant citations that started or were the foundation of a particular topic, which would very likely explain the thinking or algorithms that are employed. The search is usually done using specific keywords submitted to literature search engines such as Google Scholar and CiteSeer. However, finding relevant citations is distinctive from producing articles that are only topically similar to an author's proposal. We address the problem of citation recommendation using Singular Value Decomposition (SVD). The models are trained and evaluated on the Citeseer digital library. The results of our experiments show that SVD achieves significant success when compared with collaborative filtering approaches on the citation recommendation task.
