Analysis of Community Structure in Wikipedia

Presented at: 18th International World Wide Web Conference (WWW2009)

by Dmitry Lizorkin, Olena Medelyan, Maria Grineva

The central topic of a community can be identified using PageRank. Extracted communities can be organized hierarchically similar to manually created Wikipedia category structure.
