SCHOLAT: An Innovative Academic Information Service Platform
We present a system called SCHOLAT, which is implemented as a scholar-oriented social network that aims to form an academic community to let users establish connection with other researchers. SCHOLAT provides two novel professional services that are useful to researchers, namely, XPSearch and XSRecom. XPSearch is a service that provides vertical searching of research papers with author name disambiguation. XSRecom uses a topic community-based method to provide users with a list of “Recommend Scholars”, which can help them find potential collaborators who share the same research interests and may be interested in building a cooperative relationship. These two services boost the efficiency of searching papers and discover research opportunities for scholars.
