Abstract
Co-citation means that two or more studies are cited together by a later study. This paper deals with the relationship between co-citation and author disambiguation. Author disambiguation is to cluster same-name author instances into real-world individuals. Co-citation may influence author disambiguation in terms that two or more related research works performed by the same person may be co-cited by some later studies. This article describes automated steps to gather co-citation information from Google scholar, and proposes a new clustering algorithm to effectively integrate co-citation information with other author disambiguation features. Experiments showed that co-citation helps to improve the performance of author disambiguation.
