A review of the literature of indexer consistency (Studies in indexing depth and retrieval effectiveness) [Mary Cuddy St. Laurent] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers.

There are six major studies of the effect of indexing depth on retrieval performance. They differ in purpose, methodology, measures, indexing language, field of study, and data base--nevertheless, all have found depth of indexing to have the same effect upon information retrieval Cited by: 6.

This paper presents a logical analysis of the characteristics of indexing and their effects on retrieval performance.

It establishes the ability to ask the questions one needs to ask as the foundation of performance evaluation, and recall and discrimination as the basic quantitative performance measures for binary non-interactive retrieval systems.

Revisiting the Blair and Maron Study: Evaluation of Retrieval Effectiveness for a Full-Text Document-Retrieval System whereas a manually indexed system might have a subject indexing depth of ab the dictionary that lists and keeps track of these assignments (i.e., provides pointers to the database) could be as much as 50 times larger.

retrieval effectiveness of an ontology-based model for conceptual indexing Traditional approaches in information retrieval employ keyword-based techniques to look for relevant data.

This Studies of indexing depth and retrieval effectiveness. book introduces a concept-based retrieval model, which tackles vocabulary mismatches through the use of domain-dependent ontologies. This paper proposes a new indexing framework for location-aware top-k text retrieval.

The framework leverages the inverted file for text retrieval and the R-tree for spatial proximity querying. The lack of an indexing theory to explain the indexing process is a major blind spot in information retrieval. Very little seems to have been written about the role and value of theory in indexing.

Those who have written about it, however, tend to agree that it serves a vital function. Mantyla's "banana / yellow, bunches, edible" experiment demonstrates that, for best memory performance, retrieval cues should be created A.

Stop-word removal: remove the words that are redundant in every document. Journals & Books; Help For other types of fact retrieval systems and reference retrieval systems, including all systems whose stored information is expressed in natural language, the definition is not mathematically precise but is nevertheless still helpful on a conceptual level.

(“Studies in Indexing Depth and Retrieval Effectiveness. 7 We study this problem via a two-phase approach: 1) retrieving tweets in an ad-hoc way; 2) utilizing the 8 temporal information of tweets to enhance the retrieval effectiveness of tweets. Tweets can be categorized 9 into two types.

One type consists of short messages not containing any URL of a Web page. The other type. The retrieval effectiveness of Keywork-In-Context (KWIC) indexing is sought using a simple search simulation which constrains the user to approach a KWIC index with subject keywords and references dictated by a conventional index.

A comparison of several KWIC index studies, using various methodologies, shows retrievability ratios of 35 percent - 70 percent. You just clipped your first slide.

A comparison of retrieval effectiveness for three methods of indexing medical literature. Hersh WR(1), Hickam DH. Author information: (1)Biomedical Information Communication Center, Oregon Health Sciences University, Portland   Content Based Image Retrieval or CBIR is the retrieval of images based on visual features such as colour, texture and shape (Michael et al., ).

Reasons for its development are that in many large image databases, traditional methods of image indexing have proven to be insufficient, laborious, and extremely time consuming.This page contains a representative list of notable databases and search engines useful in an academic setting for finding and accessing articles in academic journals, institutional repositories, archives, or other collections of scientific and other articles.

Databases and search engines differ substantially in terms of coverage and retrieval qualities.
