Recommender system has been widely studied both in academia and industry. Survey is usually a good start for understanding a specific research area. Here, I summarize surveys on recommender system from different perspectives, hope it will help for your research.

At first, I would like to promote the survey I finished on deep learning based recommender system. Deep Learning based Recommender System: A Survey and New Perspectives, You can get access to it via I am still working on improving this survey, so if you have any suggestions, please contact me via
