In recent years there has been an increasing research interest in novelty/diversity detection in Information Retrieval and in Recommendation Systems. We propose a model that increases the novelty of recommendations using a context user profile that was created automatically using self-organizing maps. Our system was evaluated on the Reuters Corpus Volume 1 and our experiments show that filtering the recommended items using a novelty score derived from the contextbased user profile provides better search results in terms of novel information that is presented to the user.
