Arnetminer is designed to search and perform data mining operations against academic publications on the Internet, using social network analysis to identify connections between researchers, conferences, and publications. This allows it to provide services such as expert finding, geographic search, reviewer recommendation, association search, course search, academic performance evaluation, and topic modeling.

Arnetminer was created as a research project in social influence analysis, social network ranking, and social network extraction. A number of peer-reviewed papers have been published arising from the development of the system. It has been in operation for more than three years, and has indexed 1,300,000 researchers and more than three million publications. The research was funded by the Chinese National High-tech R&D Program and the National Science Foundation of China.

Arnetminer is commonly used in academia to identify relationships between and draw statistical correlations about research and researchers. It has attracted 2,766,356 independent IP accesses from 220 countries. The product has been used in Elsevier’s SciVerse platform, and academic conferences such as SIGKDD, ICDM, PKDD, WSDM.
