To Cite, or Not to Cite? Detecting Citation Contexts in Text
Buchtitel: Proceedings of the 40th European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2018)
Recommending citations for scientific texts and other texts such as news articles has recently attracted a considerable amount of attention. However, typically, the existing approaches for citation recommendation do not explicitly incorporate the question of whether a given context (e.g., a sentence), for which citations are to be recommended, actually "deserves" citations. Determining the "cite-worthiness" for each potential citation context as a step before the actual citation recommendation is beneficial, as (1) it can reduce the number of costly recommendation computations to a minimum, and (2) it can more closely approximate human-citing behavior, since neither too many nor too few recommendations are provided to the user. In this paper, we present a method based on a convolutional recurrent neural network for classifying potential citation contexts. Our experiments show that we can significantly outperform the baseline solution  and reduce the number of citation recommendations to about 1/10.
