Authorship Attribution Using Word Network Features

In this paper, we explore a set of novel features for authorship attribution of documents. These features are derived from a word network representation of natural language text. As has been noted in previous studies, natural language tends to show complex network structure at word level, with low degrees of separation and scale-free (power law) degree distribution. There has also been work on authorship attribution that incorporates ideas from complex networks. The goal of our paper is to explore properties of these complex networks that are suitable as features for machine-learning-based authorship attribution of documents. We performed experiments on three different datasets, and obtained promising results.
