Analysis of the Publication Sharing Behaviour in BibSonomy
BibSonomy is a web-based social resource sharing system which allows users to organise and share bookmarks and publications in a collaborative manner. In this paper we present the system, followed by a description of the insights in the structure of its bibliographic data that we gained by applying techniques we developed in the area of Formal Concept Analysis.
BibSonomy: A Social Bookmark and Publication Sharing System
Social bookmark tools are rapidly emerging on the Web. In suchsystems users are setting up lightweight conceptual structurescalled folksonomies. The reason for their immediate success is thefact that no specific skills are needed for participating. In thispaper we specify a formal model for folksonomies and briefly describe our own system BibSonomy, which allows for sharing both bookmarksand publication references in a kind of personal library.
