Abstract

Academic scholars have several duties, including teaching, research, and service to the community and society. While a scholar’s research impacts can be reasonably measured and tracked via citation analysis in existing digital libraries, to our best knowledge, there has been no system that systematically collects and quantifies a scholar’s impacts of service to the scientific community. In particular, we are interested in measuring scholars’ impacts as “gatekeepers,” who play a key role in the spread of research findings and new knowledge via the accept/reject decisions of research articles. In this work, toward this goal, we present a prototype digital library, Gatekeeper, that crawls, extracts, and quantifies the impacts of service based on one’s roles in the technical program committees of Computer Science conferences.
