Abstract

Digital libraries do not assign importance/relevance scores to their publications, authors, or publication venues, even though scores are potentially useful for (a) providing comparative assessment, or “importances”, of publications, authors, publication venues, (b) ranking publications returned in search outputs, and (c) using scores in locating similar publications. Using social networks and bibliometrics, one can define several score functions.
