Feature-enriched author ranking in incomplete networks

Jorge Silva, David Aparício, Fernando Silva
2019 Applied Network Science  
Network algorithms, such as PageRank, have been used to measure node importance in a network, and have been applied to author ranking.  ...  Here we describe OTARIOS, an author ranking method recently developed by us, which combines multiple publication/citation criteria (i.e., features) to evaluate authors.  ...  Authors' contributions All authors wrote the manuscript. All authors read and approved the final manuscript.  ...

Dinesh Pradhan, Partha Sarathi Paul, Umesh Maheswari, Subrata Nandi, Tanmoy Chakraborty
2016 arXiv   pre-print
In this work we leverage the citations as well as collaboration profile of an author in a novel way using a weighted multi-layered network and propose a variant of page-rank algorithm to obtain a new author  ...  Author performance indices (such as h-index and its variants) fail to resolve ties while ranking authors with low index values (majority in number) which includes the young researchers.  ...  For all other uses, contact the owner/author(s). author-author coauthorship (weighted, undirected), paper-paper citation (directed, unweighted) and author-author citation(weighted, directed).  ...
