fdata-02-00038-g0003_From Big Scholarly Data to Solution-Oriented Knowledge Repository.tif
The volume of scientific articles grow rapidly, producing a scientific basis for understanding and identifying the research problems and the state-of-the-art solutions. Despite the considerable significance of the problem-solving information, existing scholarly recommending systems lack the ability to retrieve this information from the scientific articles for generating knowledge repositories and providing problem-solving recommendations. To address this issue, this paper proposes a novel framework to build solution-oriented knowledge repositories and provide recommendations to solve given research problems. The framework consists of three modules: a semantics based information extraction module mining research problems and solutions from massive academic papers; a knowledge assessment module based on the heterogeneous bibliometric graph and a ranking algorithm; and a knowledge repository generation module to produce solution-oriented maps with recommendations. Based on the framework, a prototype scholarly solution support system is implemented. A case study is carried out in the research field of intrusion detection, and the results demonstrate the effectiveness and efficiency of the proposed method.
