EndorSeer: An Add-on for Browsing Digital Libraries with "Endorsed" Citations
Co-citations have long been used as a measure of topical relatedness between documents. However, we have observed some characteristic patterns in the way cocitations are formed in different data corpora. Based on these observations, we propose various interpretations of what a co-citation means. For the purposes of this demo, we concern ourselves only with one of our interpretations: co-citations as citation endorsements. This interpretation can be used by focused surfers to browse citations that are relevant to their topic of interest in digital libraries. In this demo, we present EndorSeer, a Firefox add-on for CiteSeer, which emphasizes the topical relevance of outgoing citations of a given document by ranking them based on their endorsements by third-party co-citations.
