Citations are important in academic dissemination. To help researchers check the completeness of citations while authoring a paper, we introduce a citation recommendation system called RefSeer. RefSeer presents both topic-based global recommendations and citation-context-based local recommendations. Refseer uses documents in CiteSeerX for both its offline training and online recommendation. It is currently trained with over 5 million documents. Researchers can use this system while authoring papers to find related works to cite. It can also be used by reviewers to check the completeness of a paper’s references.
There has been much work on citation and paper recommendation systems. The goals of such research and systems are to provide authors insights into the existing relevant literature.
Prof. Mitra leads the RefSeer project and is a co-PI on the next generation CiteSeerx project.

Prof. Giles co-leads the RefSeer project. He is a PI of the CiteSeerx project. He created CiteSeer in 1997 with Steve Lawrence and Kurt Bollacker while they were at the NEC Research Institute (now NEC Labs) in Princeton, New Jersey, USA. RefSeer is a functionality on top of the new generation CiteSeerx project.
