Context-specific document recommender systems rely on the accurate identification of context descriptors from unstructured textual information to identify highly relevant documents. In this paper, we propose two term-weighting measures, normal distance and adjusted inverse polysemy, to enable the retrieval of relevant documents with higher precision. We analyze the performance of the proposed measures and present results with respect to a domain-specific corpus.
