You are invited to submit to the 8th international workshop on
Bibliometric-enhanced Information Retrieval (BIR 2019), to be held as part of
the 41st European Conference on Information Retrieval (ECIR 2019).
=== Important Dates ===

- Notifications: 2 March 2019
- Camera Ready Contributions: 2 April 2019
- Workshop: 14 April 2019 in Cologne, Germany
=== tl;dr ===
The Bibliometric-enhanced Information Retrieval (BIR) workshop series at ECIR
tackles issues related to academic search, at the crossroads between
Information Retrieval and Bibliometrics. BIR is a hot topic investigated by
both academia (e.g., ArnetMiner, CiteSeerX, DocEar) and the industry (e.g.,
Google Scholar, Microsoft Academic Search, Semantic Scholar). A one-day
workshop is to be held at ECIR 2019 in Cologne, Germany.
Past BIR proceedings are online https://dblp.org/search?q=BIR.ECIR as open
=== Keywords ===
Academic Search, Information Retrieval, Digital Libraries, Bibliometrics,
=== Workshop Topics ===
We welcome submissions regarding all three aspects of the search/recommendation
- User needs and behaviour regarding scientific information, such as:
. Finding relevant papers/authors for a literature review.
. Measuring the degree of plagiarism in a paper.
. Identifying expert reviewers for a given submission.
. Flagging predatory conferences and journals.
- The characteristics of scientific information, such as:
. Measuring the reliability of bibliographic libraries.
. Spotting research trends and research fronts.
- Academic search/recommendation systems, such as:
. Modelling the multifaceted nature of scientific information.
. Building test collections for reproducible BIR.
. System support for literature search and recommendation.
We especially invite descriptions of running projects and ongoing work as well
as contributions from industry. Papers that investigate multiple themes
directly are especially welcome.
=== Aim of the Workshop ===
Searching for scientific information is a long-lived information need. In the
early 1960s, Salton (1963) was already striving to enhance information
retrieval by including clues inferred from bibliographic citations. The
development of citation indexes pioneered by Garfield (1955) proved determinant
for such a research endeavour at the crossroads between the nascent fields of
Information Retrieval (IR) and Bibliometrics [Bibliometrics refers to the
statistical analysis of the academic literature (Pritchard, 1969) and plays a
key role in scientometrics: the quantitative analysis of science and innovation
(Leydesdorff & Milojevic, 2015)]. The pioneers who established these fields in
Information Science---such as Salton and Garfield---were followed by scientists
who specialised in one of these (White & McCain, 1998), leading to the two
loosely connected fields we know of today.
The purpose of the BIR workshop series founded in 2014 is to tighten up the
link between IR and Bibliometrics. We strive to get the ‘retrievalists’ and
‘citationists’ (White & McCain, 1998) active in both academia and the industry
together, who are developing search engines and recommender systems such as
ArnetMiner, CiteSeerX, DocEar, Google Scholar, Microsoft Academic Search, and
Semantic Scholar, just to name a few.
These bibliometric-enhanced IR systems must deal with the multifaceted nature
of scientific information by searching for or recommending academic papers,
patents, venues (i.e., conferences or journals), authors, experts (e.g., peer
reviewers), references (to be cited to support an argument), and datasets. The
underlying models harness relevance signals from keywords provided by authors,
topics extracted from the full-texts, coauthorship networks, citation networks,
and various classifications schemes of science.
Bibliometric-enhanced IR is a hot topic whose recent developments made the
news---see for instance the Initiative for Open Citations (Shotton, 2018) and
the Google Dataset Search (Castelvecchi, 2018) launched on September 4, 2018.
We believe that BIR@ECIR is a much needed scientific event for the
‘retrievalists’ and ‘citationists’ to meet and join forces pushing the
knowledge boundaries of IR applied to literature search and recommendation.

=== Submission Details ===
All submissions must be written in English following Springer LNCS author
guidelines (6 to 12 pages) and should be submitted as PDF files to EasyChair.
All submissions will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers. Please
be aware of the fact that at least one author per paper needs to register for
the workshop and attend the workshop to present the work. In case of no-show
the paper (even if accepted) will be deleted from the proceedings AND from the
Workshop proceedings will be deposited online in the CEUR workshop proceedings
publication service (ISSN 1613-0073) - this way the proceedings will be
permanently available and citable (digital persistent identifiers and long term
preservation). A special issue of the Scientometrics journal
(http://link.springer.com/journal/11192) will include extended versions of the
best papers presented at the workshop.
