Abstract

Citations are important in academic dissemination. To help researchers check the completeness of citations while authoring a paper, we introduce a citation recommendation system called RefSeer. Researchers can use it to find related works to cited while authoring papers. It can also be used by reviewers to check the completeness of a paper's references. RefSeer presents both topic based global recommendation and also citation-context based local recommendation. By evaluating the quality of recommendation, we show that such recommendation system can recommend citations with good precision and recall. We also show that our recommendation system is very efficient and scalable.
