Classical papers are of great help for beginners to get familiar with a new research area. However, digging them out is a difficult problem. This paper proposes Claper, a novel academic recommendation system based on two proven principles: the Principle of Download Persistence and the Principle of Citation Approaching (we prove them based on real-world datasets). The principle of download persistence indicates that classical papers have few decreasing download frequencies since they were published. The principle of citation approaching indicates that a paper which cites a classical paper is likely to cite citations of that classical paper. Our experimental results based on large-scale real-world datasets illustrate Claper can effectively recommend classical papers of high quality to beginners and thus help them enter their research areas.
