A Survey of Recommender Systems at Major STI Providers

Part of the Contributions to Management Science book series (MANAGEMENT SC.)

The usage of recommender systems at major STI providers is still in its infancy. This chapter gives an overview of the existing recommendation services at scientific libraries, some of the relevant scientific projects, as well as the most relevant e-commerce application for STI. A comparable analysis can be found in [FGSN08]. While the quantity—not necessarily the quality as well—of recommender systems in commercial applications is quite high, very few scientific recommender research groups have their own permanently running services open to the general public. Although nearly all traditional scientific libraries at large universities have been turned into hybrid libraries covering both paper and digital documents, more advanced research tools besides standard database metadata searches do not exist often.
