Bachelor and Master Theses

Title: A Sustainable Reasearch Evaluation Portal
Subject: Computer Science
Level: Basic or Advanced (contact supervisor)
Description: The goal is implementation of a website (XAMPP). The website should provide user management. Users should be able to upload and download papers, including copyright management, and reviewing and grading of papers. The result should look similar to research gate, extended with a sophisticated rating system. In case a user ranks a paper they get credit just for providing a review. In case the review is positive, the authors of the paper, the paper itself and the workshop/conference/journal it was published in/at get positive credit. In the opposite case they get negative credit despite cases in which a reviewer that has negative credit gives a negative review. Then, the authors, paper and conference rated might get good credit.

The two focus points are the practical implementation of the website and the theory behind the rating algorithm. Secondary objectives (to extend this to 30 ECTS) can be i) to include generated test data provided by MDH staff reviewing each otherís papers, ii) a dynamically balancing algorithm, iii) and extending the webserver to run distributed (hot-plug extendibility, backups).
