    Metadata impact on research paper similarity

    Get PDF
    While collaborative filtering and citation analysis have been well studied for research paper recommender systems, content-based approaches typically restrict themselves to straightforward application of the vector space model. However, various types of metadata containing potentially useful information are usually available as well. Our work explores several methods to exploit this information in combination with different similarity measures

    What makes a good research paper?

    The annual round of refereeing for the ARCOM conference always prompts a stimulating debate among the committee members as to what constitutes a good research paper. Clearly, there is a good deal of subjectivity in distinguishing good from bad, but there may be some basic characteristics that mark out a research paper from any other kind of paper, and it is good research papers that we would like to encourage at the annual conference

    Ethics in Maori research: Working paper

    Get PDF
    When we think about what we are doing as researchers, one of our main tasks is to acquire knowledge. For some researchers their task begins and ends there. Knowledge is viewed as cumulative, that by adding to some knowledge pool we will one day be able to put the component parts together and discover universal laws. Many researchers also assume that the knowledge they have collected is objective, value-free and apolitical. This is part of psychologists’ ‘physics envy’. A Maori view of knowledge is very different from this. For Maori the purpose of knowledge is to uphold the interests and the mana of the group; it serves the community. Researchers are not building up their own status; they are fighting for the betterment of their iwi and for Maori people in general

    The Employment, Investment and Current Account Effects of Exchange Rate Policies in a Cash-in-Advance Economy

    Get PDF
    The effects of exchange rate policies are examined for a small open economy in an infinite horizon model with investment, labor/leisure choice, and cash-in-advance for consumption. An increase in the rate of depreciation of the domestic currency reduces consumption and labor supply, as the higher inflation increases the price of consumption relative to leisure. The fall in labor reduces the marginal productivity of capital, and a fall in investment. The country runs a current account surplus, despite the fall in output. The dynamics of the model for permanent, temporary and anticipated policy changes are fully worked out.Employment, Investment, Current Account, Cash-in-Advance

    XML technology assisted research paper abstract writing

    iven its briefness, inherent complexity and massive and critical use in scientific discourse, the research paper abstract (RP A) is a text type particularly interesting for both linguistic modelling (writing and reading) and automatic processing (generation and parsing). Even though the current literature on these fields is large and promising, there are still various gaps to fill, especially in the domain of the interplay between linguistic modelling and the development of applications for the solution of communication problems. Our purpose here is to present the RedACTe Project's approach to the design of software oriented to rhetorical and linguistic assistance in RP A writingFil: Castel, Víctor M.
