A demonstration paper about the integration of Mr. DLib in JabRef is accepted for publication at ECIR 2017. We will update this post soon with more information and a pre-print.
Content-based filtering suffers from the problem that no human quality assessments are taken into account. This means, a poorly written paper ppoor would be considered equally relevant for a given input paper pinput as high-quality paper pquality if pquality and ppoor contain the same words.
