Abstract : We investigate profile diversity, a novel idea in searching scientific documents. Combining keyword relevance with popularity in a scoring function has been the subject of different forms of social relevance. Content diversity has been thoroughly studied in search and advertising, database queries, and recommendations. We believe our work is the first to investigate profile diversity to address the problem of returning highly popular but too-focused documents. We show how to adapt Fagin's threshold-based algorithms to return the most relevant and most popular documents that satisfy content and profile diversities and run preliminary experiments on two benchmarks to validate our scoring function.
