Further Details
Abstract The BIR workshop brings together experts of Bibliometrics and Information Retrieval. While sometimes perceived as rather loosely related, they share various interests and face similar challenges. Our motivation as organizers of the BIR workshop stemmed from a twofold observation. First, both communities are only partly overlapping albeit sharing various interests. Second, knowledge transfer would be profitable for both sides to tackle some of the emerging problems scholars face nowadays when they have to deal with identifying relevant and high quality literature among the very fast growing number of electronic publications available worldwide. Bibliometric techniques are not yet widely used to enhance retrieval processes in digital libraries, although they offer value-added effects for users. Information professionals working in libraries and archives, however, are increasingly confronted with applying bibliometric techniques in their services. The first workshop in 2014 set the research agenda by introducing each other state-of-the-art methods, reporting on current research problems, and brainstorming about common interests. The second workshop in 2015 continued the overall communication and reunification. This third BIR workshop continues to foster a common ground for the incorporation of bibliometric-enhanced services into scholarly search engine interfaces. In particular we address specific communities, as well as studies on large, cross-domain collections like Mendeley and ResearchGate. The third BIR workshop addresses scholarly and explicitly industrial researchers.
