Recommending intra-institutional scientific collaboration through coauthorship network visualization uri icon

Abstract

  • For improving research productivity, quality and dissemination, we propose the development of a visual recommendation tool summing up scientific collaboration best-practices found in literature. Social Network Analysis are applied to a coauthorship network for generating a Potential Collaboration Index (PCI) based on productivity, connectivity, similarity and expertise. This work is evaluated by recommending intra-institutional collaboration in a comprehensive university. The accuracy of PCI is documented, along with suggestions and comments from 27 interviewed researchers. © 2013 ACM.
