RANKING ALGORITHMS FOR WEB SITES - Finding Authoritative Academic Web Sites and Researchers

Dalibor Fiala, François Rousselot, Karel Jezek

Abstract

In this paper, we discuss several common ranking algorithms for Web pages and we present a methodology based on them for finding authoritative researchers by analyzing academic Web sites. We show a case study in which we concentrate on a set of French computer science departments’ Web sites. We analyze the relations between them via hyperlinks and find the most important ones. We then examine the contents of the research papers present on these sites and determine the most authoritative French authors. We also propose some future improvements.
