2013 Proceedings of the International Workshop on Reproducibility and Replication in Recommender Systems Evaluation - RepSys '13  
Over 80 approaches for academic literature recommendation exist today. The approaches were introduced and evaluated in more than 170 research articles, as well as patents, presentations and blogs.  ...  Due to these and several other shortcomings described in this paper, we conclude that it is currently not possible to determine which recommendation approaches for academic literature are the most promising  ...  Discuss the suitability of offline evaluations for evaluating research paper recommender systems (we started this already with the preliminary conclusion that offline evaluations are unsuitable in many  ...

A Comparison of Offline Evaluations, Online Evaluations, and User Studies in the Context of Research-Paper Recommender Systems [chapter]

Joeran Beel, Stefan Langer
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The evaluation of recommender systems is key to the successful application of recommender systems in practice.  ...  However, although offline evaluations theoretically might have some inherent value, we conclude that in practice, offline evaluations are probably not suitable to evaluate recommender systems, particularly  ...  If one had trusted the offline evaluation, one had never considered stereotype and citation-based recommendations to be a worthwhile option.  ...

Evaluation Infrastructures for Academic Shared Tasks

Johann Schaible, Timo Breuer, Narges Tavakolpoursaleh, Bernd Müller, Benjamin Wolff, Philipp Schaer
2020 Datenbank-Spektrum  
In addition, we introduce an evaluation infrastructure concept design aiming at reducing the shortcomings in shared tasks for search and recommender systems.  ...  Due to these requirements, small to mid-size academic search systems cannot evaluate their retrieval system in-house. Evaluation infrastructures for shared tasks alleviate this situation.  ...  Either the option for an online evaluation or the ability for reproducibility was not given, which poses a problem for validating user-centric experiment results.  ...
