Traditional citation networks which form the basis of study of community interaction tend to leave out a lot of articles which are related to a community but have not been directly cited by the members of it. As a result, the parameters estimated during the study of community interaction remain fairly inaccurate. In this work, we tend to perform a more accurate community interaction study by proposing a context-aware citation network which allows inclusion of papers to a community which have both direct as well as indirect relevance to the existing members of the community. A comparative analysis of computer science community networks built upon the proposed citation network and traditional citation network using the CiteSeer dataset show about 20–30% better results in favour of the former.
