We are iRiS Lab at University of Pittsburgh and are conducting a study to learn how researchers use academic social networking sites. Please find the following link to the questionnaire that asks a variety of questions about your attitudes toward your usages of Mendeley. The average survey duration is 6-8 minutes.
We will only analyze your answers in aggregation, and will not release them to others. This study has been approved by the University of Pittsburgh Institutional Review Board (# PRO12090367). We hope you can participate in our study. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

As we all know, social skills and properties are just as important as knowledge or content skills when we try to make groups or recommend people (or objects). Obviously, when you want an answer to a question, you just need the right answer, regardless of which the guy answering it is a pr*ck. If we aim to do a project, other skills and factors are important than just domain-specific expertise. Reputation systems have the ability to make user models for all kinds of personal properties, but so far I have only seen models and systems that focus on a limited set of properties. I assume that an effective reputation/profiling system (for people and organizations) take into account a combination of social and domain-specific factors. What do you think? Any papers on this topic (especially the topic of reputation ontologies)?
I have made this collection to collect articles and papers that are concerned with reputation mechanisms on the web; how things are reputed, identified, and profiled. - Profiling - Reputation - Trust - Semantics and ontologies - Social networking - Algorithms
