Quantifying Wide Research Gap in Academia Toward Paper Recommendation

Research Outline


  New knowledge emerges from areas that have already received attention, which is known as the bandwagon effect. However, science has experienced nonlinear growth by exploiting wide research gaps where the link between knowledge has not yet been recognized.  This research aims to support researchers' creativity by focusing on the delayed recognition in science to automatically extract wide research gaps and utilize them in the paper recommendation.
