You Can Teach an Old Dog New Tricks: Rank Fusion applied to Coordination Level Matching for Ranking in Systematic Reviews [chapter]

Harrisen Scells, Guido Zuccon, Bevan Koopman
2020 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This paper presents a novel extension to coordination level matching, by applying rank fusion to each sub-clause of a Boolean query.  ...  documents given only a Boolean query in the context of systematic reviews when compared to other approaches.  ...  Rather than using fusion methods like CombMNZ, it is foreseeable to use a different combination of weights for each Boolean clause considered. Fig. 1 . 1 Types of clauses in a Boolean query.  ...

1986 Proceedings of the 9th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '86  
Although the experimental results for extended Boolean retrieval are not always better than the vector processing method, the developments here am signiecant in facilitating commercially available retrieval  ...  'Ilte query language extension is attractive in the sense that most of the aIgebraic properties of tbe strict Boolean language are still preserved.  ...  Extended Boolean Environment under the GVSM In this section we extend the ideas presented to obtain a scheme for expressing weighted Boolean queries as a vector.  ...

N-layer Approach to Web Information Retrieval

Jayant Gadge, S.S. Sane, H.B. Kekre
2013 International Journal of Applied Information Systems  
In web information retrieval, the terms or keywords are used for indexing purpose of document.  ...  Vector space model ignores the importance of these terms with respect to their position while calculating the weight of the indexing terms.  ...  In Section 4, Weight evaluation scheme which is used for comparison of vector space model and n-layer vector space model is discussed.  ...

Combining the evidence of multiple query representations for information retrieval

N.J. Belkin, P. Kantor, E.A. Fox, J.A. Shaw
1995 Information Processing & Management  
In the second project, two automatically-produced vector queries and three versions of a manually produced P-norm extended boolean query for each routing and ad hoc topic were compared and combined.  ...  In one of the projects, five separate Boolean queries for each of the 50 TREC routing topics and 25 of the TREC ad hoc topics were generated by 75 experienced online searchers.  ...  Finally, the weighting scheme wboth simulates a situation which might arise in updating or tuning a combination rule after two batches of documents have been retrieved.  ...

Data Fusion in IR usually combines the various retrieval schemes (strategies) to enhance the overall system performance.  ...  Information Retrieval (IR) is the process of retrieving information that is relevant to the users' needs.  ...  In some retrieval system, there is no provision for listing. Apart from this, the different retrieval systems use the different weighting schemes.  ...
