Scholars usually spend great deal of time on searching and reading papers of key researchers. However, to objectively determine key researcher of a topic relies on several measurements, such as publication, citation, recent academic activities. In this paper, a prototype of scholars searching and recommendation system based on a web mining approach in expert finding system is proposed. The system gives and recommends the ranking of scholars and turns out top-k scholars. A new ranking measure is designed, namely p-index, to reveal the scholar ranking of a certain field. We use a real-world dataset to test the robustness, the experiment results show our approach outperforms other existing approaches and users are highly interested in using the system again.
