Context effect on query formulation and subjective relevance in health searches

Carla Teixeira Lopes, Cristina Ribeiro
2010 Proceeding of the third symposium on Information interaction in context - IIiX '10  
We found many variables do indeed affect query formulation and relevance judgment.  ...  It is recognized by the Information Retrieval community that context affects the retrieval process. Query formulation and relevance assessment are stages where the user role is central.  ...  , in this paper, we focus on subjective types of relevance.  ...

The cognitive demands of an innovative query user interface

Di Wang, David R Kaufman, Eneida A Mendonca, Yoon-Hu Seol, Stephen B Johnson, James J Cimino
2002 Proceedings. AMIA Symposium

Effects of Terminology on Health Queries: An Analysis by User's Health Literacy and Topic Familiarity [chapter]

Carla Teixeira Lopes, Cristina Ribeiro
2015 Advances in Librarianship  
In a second stage, IR works that explore the two main context features used in this work -health literacy and topic familiarity, are also discussed.  ...  On the other hand, retrieval systems should provide lay alternative queries in users with inadequate health literacy or in those unfamiliar with a topic.  ...  Its authors studied the impact of several context features on query formulation and relevance assessment in health searches and concluded that, in more familiar tasks, users employ medico-scientific terminology  ...

MMSE: Design & Implementation of a Medical Meta Search Engine

Ali Rezaeian Joojadeh, Hamid Hassanpour
2012 International Journal of Machine Learning and Computing  
The power of the system is based on the ability to understand the semantics of web pages and the user queries. This MMSE transforms a keyword search into a conceptual search.  ...  Since this system is designed to help people seeking information about health on the web, our target users are not medical specialists who can effectively use the special jargon of medicine and access  ...  and tools to help ordinary people in searching health information on the Internet.  ...

A Computational Approach for Objectively Derived Systematic Review Search Strategies [chapter]

Harrisen Scells, Guido Zuccon, Bevan Koopman, Justin Clark
2020 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The typical process of constructing search strategies is often undocumented, ad-hoc, and subject to individual expertise, which may introduce bias in the systematic review.  ...  Our adaptation removes the human-in-the-loop processes involved in the initial steps of creating a search strategy for a systematic review; reducing bias due to human factors and increasing the objectivity  ...  Query formulation is currently a highly subjective and error-prone process, and reducing subjectivity and mistakes in search strategy construction can only lead to less biased, reproducible, and timely  ...

A model for the evaluation of search queries in medical bibliographic sources

Anita A. H. Verhoeven, Peter M. Boendermaker, Edzard J. Boerma, Betty Meyboom-De Jong
1999 Health Libraries Review  
Four search queries related to general practice were formulated for a continuing medical education course in literature searching.  ...  We describe a model for the evaluation of search queries based not only on the relevance, but also on the quality of the citations retrieved.  ...  high-quality searches on medical decision-making and patient care in primary health care.  ...

Exploring Query Expansion for Entity Searches in PubMed

Chung-Chi Huang, Zhiyong Lu
2016 Proceedings of the Seventh International Workshop on Health Text Mining and Information Analysis  
In these two real-world scenarios, better PubMed retrieval effectiveness, in terms of recall and precision, can be achieved, demonstrating the utility of our proposed approach.  ...  Identifying relevant studies from the entire scientific literature is an important task in biomedical research.  ...  Next, we formulate queries to context patterns and focus on specifically discovering synonymous patterns for chemical-chemical (CC) and chemical-disease (CD) relations.  ...

A subjunctive exploratory search interface to support media studies researchers

Marc Bron, Jasmijn van Gorp, Frank Nack, Maarten de Rijke, Andrei Vishneuski, Sonja de Leeuw
2012 Proceedings of the 35th international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '12  
Based on these outcomes we propose a subjunctive exploratory search interface to support media studies researchers in refining their research question in an earlier stage of their research.  ...  We investigate the research cycle of media studies researchers and find that it is an iterative process consisting of several search processes in which data is gathered and the research question is refined  ...  Subjects were instructed to bookmark programs deemed relevant to formulate their research question and given 30 minutes to search for relevant programs with one of the two interfaces.  ...

Characterizing Health-Related Information Needs of Domain Experts [chapter]

Eya Znaidi, Lynda Tamine, Cecile Chouquet, Chiraz Latiri
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
While many studies investigated how users in general carry out exploratory health searches in digital environments, a few focused on how are the queries formulated, specifically by domain expert users.  ...  A statistical analysis has been carried out to study both variation and correlation of health-query attributes such as length, clarity and specificity of either clinical or non clinical queries.  ...  To tackle this problem, several studies investigated mainly the analysis of consumer health information behaviour in one side and their query formulations in the other side.  ...
