In this blog, we explain the logic behind the new rescaled PageRank metric and introduce the functions provided by this web site. We hope to add more functionality in the future and this blog is the place to keep track of that.

1. Rescaled PageRank made simple

Rescaled PageRank is a time-balanced metric built on the classical Google's PageRank metric. In this first post, we briefly review the PageRank algorithm and introduce the main idea behind the novel metric...

2. Deeper into rescaled PageRank

The classical PageRank metric acts on directed networks and it hadn't take long for researchers to realize that the directed network of citations among scientific papers could perhaps be a use case for PageRank...

3. A glance at the data

The APS citation data from 1893 until December 2013 have been kindly provided to us by the APS (see their datasets for research page). To make the data as up to date as possible, we did several crawls of the APS web site...
