Recent academic procedures have depicted that work involving scientific research tends to be more prolific through collaboration and cooperation among researchers and research groups. On the other hand, discovering new collaborators who are smart enough to conduct joint-research work is accompanied with both difficulties and opportunities. One notable difficulty as well as opportunity is the big scholarly data. In this paper, we satisfy the demand of collaboration recommendation through

Each metric is studied through mutual paper co-authoring information and serves to compute the link importance such that a random walker is more likely to visit the valuable nodes. Our experiments on DBLP dataset show that our approach can improve the precision, recall rate and coverage rate of recommendation, compared with other state-of-the-art approaches.
