A Graph Analytics Framework for Ranking Authors, Papers and Venues

Arindam Pal, Sushmita Ruj

A lot of scientific works are published in different areas of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. It is not easy, even for experts, to judge the quality of authors, papers and venues (conferences and journals). An objective measure to assign scores to these entities and to rank them is very useful. Although, several metrics and indexes have been proposed earlier, they suffer from various problems. In this paper, we propose a graph-based analytics framework to assign scores and to rank authors, papers and venues. Our algorithm considers only the link structures of the underlying graphs. It does not take into account other aspects, such as the associated texts and the reputation of these entities. In the limit of large number of iterations, the solution of the iterative equations gives the unique entity scores. This framework can be easily extended to other interdependent networks.
