Several recommender systems have been proposed in the literature for adaptively suggesting useful references to researchers with different interests. However, in order to access the knowledge contained in the recommended papers, the users need to read the publications for identifying the potentially interesting concepts. In this work we propose to overcome this limitation by utilizing a more semantic approach where concepts are extracted from the papers for generating and explaining the recommendations. By showing the concepts used to find the recommended articles, users can have a preliminary idea about the filtered publications, can understand the reasons why the papers were suggested and they can also provide new feedback about the relevance of the concepts utilized for generating the recommendations.
