The BIR workshop was also informed by an ongoing COST Action TD1210 KnowEscape .
The 1st Bibliometric-enhanced Information Retrieval (BIR) workshop @ECIR 2014 in Amsterdam (NL) aimed to engage with the IR community about possible links to bibliometrics and scholarly communication (see more detail in the editorial). Bibliometric techniques are not yet widely used to enhance retrieval processes in digital libraries, although they offer value-added effects for users. To give an example, recent approaches have shown the possibilities of alternative ranking methods based on citation analysis leading to an enhanced IR.
