Clustering of scientific citations in Wikipedia 

Abstract  The instances of templates in Wikipedia form an interesting data set of structured information. Here I focus on the cite journal template that is primarily used for citation to articles in scientific journals. These citations can be extracted and analyzed: Nonnegative matrix factorization is performed on a (article x journal) matrix resulting in a soft clustering of Wikipedia articles and scientific journals, each cluster more or less representing a scientific topic. 
Keywords  Clustering, Wikipedia, nonnegative matrix factorization, scientometrics
