Citation recommendation (CR) is able to intelligently generate a paper list related to a query paper, which is of great value to researches. CR problem is related to papers?? semantic and structural information. Recently, network representation learning (NRL) based CR problem has gained extensive attention. However, existing studies all use single granularity networks to model CR, which have the disadvantages of high computational complexity and large memory consumption. For overcoming this challenge, this paper proposes a citation recommendation algorithm based on hierarchical attributed network representation learning (CR-HANRSL), which can greatly improve the efficiency of NRL while taking into account semantic and structural features of papers. First, the network is coarsened into a series of smaller networks based on papers?? attributes and author relationship repeatedly, and the super-nodes are made to contain child-nodes?? attributes after coarsening for further constructing semantic links. Second, this paper uses the single granularity NRL to learn the roughened network and graph convolutional network to refine the learned network representations. Finally, a multi-modal feature representation similarity between papers is generated to get a paper recommendation list. A mass of experimental results on AAN and DBLP two datasets show that the proposed method can improve NRL??s efficiency while learning high-quality network feature representations.

Key words: citation recommendation (CR), hierarchical attributed network, semantic links, representation learning
