I think the author should have cited this paper

The algorithms looks similar and basically the method is not new actually the algorithm is eventually applied in other domain of interest.

In our paper, the item-based collaborative filtering and user-based collaborative filtering algorithms have cited the references 20 (Sarwar et al., In Proceedings of the World Wide Web Conference (WWWC10), 2001, 285–295.) and 21 (Herlocker et al., ACM T Inform Syst., 2004, 22: 5-53.). The network-based inference (NBI) method has cited the ref 19 (Zhou et al. New J Phys. 2007, 11: 123008.). Today, the collaborative filtering and NBI algorithms have been used and published by many papers in the area of economic and social complex network, but not in drug discovery field. We can not cite every related paper. So we did not cite the similar paper (Hidalgo et al., PNAS, 2009, 106: 10570-10575).
