Two of our papers about weighting citations and terms in the context of user modeling got accepted at the iConference 2017. Here are the abstracts, and links to the pre-print versions: Evaluating the CC-IDF citation-weighting scheme: How effectively can ‘Inverse Document Frequency’ (IDF) be applied to references? In the domain of academic search engines and research-paper […]
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. We elevate for this problem by using Mendeley’s readership data for re-ranking Mr. DLib’s […]
We are glad to announce that JabRef – one of the most popular open-source reference manager – will soon be using Mr. DLib to provide recommendatins to its users. The team of Mr. DLib and JabRef had several Skype calls, and we finally agreed about a concept how to integrate Mr. DLib into JabRef. In a first […]

We have integrated several new recommendation algorithms into Mr. DLib. Some algorithms are only ought as baselines for our researchers, others hopefully will further increase the effectiveness of Mr. DLib. Overall, Mr. DLib now uses the following algorithms: Random The approach randomly picks the set of documents to recommend to the user. We experiment with this […]
So far, Mr. DLib’s recommender system was running only on a single server. Consequently, when me messed up something in the development environment, sometimes the production system was affected, i.e. down. From today on, we have two additional dedicated servers running, meaning we have a total of three servers, one for the development, one for beta, and […]
We are proud to announce that the social science portal Sowiport is using Mr. DLib as first pilot partner. Sowiport pools and links quality information from domestic and international providers, making it available in one place. Sowiport currently contains 9.5 million references on publications and research projects. The documents in Sowiport comprise bibliographic metadata (such […]
