Shaikhah Alotaibi, Julita Vassileva
2016 Proceedings of the 2016 Conference on User Modeling Adaptation and Personalization - UMAP '16  
We argued that the available data in social bookmarking Web sites such as CiteULike or Mendeley could be exploited to connect similar users using implicit social connections based on their bookmarking  ...  Then, we test which implicit social network provides the best recommendation accuracy.  ...  Therefore, we propose three implicit social networks that exploit data from the users' publication list (if there is one) and bookmarked papers in the social bookmarking Web sites.  ...
