Hi Folk -
Hope you are well.
I'm working with a student who is creating a network based on overlapping
terms (call them keywords for simplicity), and we're looking for a way to
scale the overlap by the relative frequency of the words.
So, for example, you might have two papers that share 3 keywords, but those
keywords are very common, compared to a paper where they share 3 very rare
keywords. We would want to weight the link between the two papers in the
second case higher than the first.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
