Combining Bibliometrics and Information Retrieval – workshop at the ISSI 2013
July 15, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Bibliometric techniques are not yet widely used to enhance retrieval processes in digital libraries, yet they offer value-added effects for users. How can we build scholarly information systems that explicitly use them at the user-system interface? We will explore how network analysis, statistical modelling, and mapping of scholarship can improve retrieval services for specific communities, as well as for large, cross-domain collections. Some of these techniques are already used in working systems; others are envisioned for the future. We will ask: how can models of science be interrelated with scholarly, task-oriented searching? And can insights from searching improve the science models themselves?
