Enabling Interactive Query Expansion through Eliciting the Potential Effect of Expansion Terms [chapter]

Nuzhah Gooda Sahib, Anastasios Tombros, Ian Ruthven
2010 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Despite its potential to improve search effectiveness, previous research has shown that the uptake of interactive query expansion (IQE) is limited.  ...  Overall, our work presents strong evidence that searchers are more likely to engage with suggested terms if they are supported by the search interface.  ...  Interface One of the reasons for the lack of uptake in IQE is poor interface design that does not support the user in making good expansion decisions.  ...

Elicitation of term relevance feedback

Diane Kelly, Xin Fu
2006 Proceedings of the 29th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '06  
We conduct a between subjects experiment (n=61) of three term relevance feedback interfaces using the 2005 TREC HARD collection, and evaluate each interface with respect to query length and retrieval performance  ...  expansion terms.  ...  One purpose of the current study is to investigate if an interface that provides term context helps users make better query expansion decisions.  ...

Examining the effectiveness of real-time query expansion

Ryen W. White, Gary Marchionini
2007 Information Processing & Management  
Our findings have broad implications for how IQE should be offered, and form part of our research on the development of techniques to support the increased use of query expansion.  ...  To investigate how the technique is used -and when it may be useful -we conducted a user study comparing three search interfaces: a baseline interface with no query expansion support; an interface that  ...  led to subjects needing fewer query iterations than a baseline interface with no query formulation support.  ...

A study of real-time query expansion effectiveness

Ryen W. White, Gary Marchionini
2006 Proceedings of the 29th annual international ACM SIGIR conference on Research and development in information retrieval - SIGIR '06  
Analysis of the results shows that offering IQE during query formulation leads to better quality initial queries, and an increased uptake of query expansion.  ...  In this poster, we describe the study of an interface technique that provides a list of suggested additional query terms as a searcher types a search query, in effect offering interactive query expansion  ...  Real-Time Query Expansion (RTQE) describes an interface mechanism whereby candidate expansion terms are presented to the searcher as they enter their search query.  ...

For users, migrating from one NLIDB to another is a difficult problem. To solve this problem, NLIDB needs to be standardized so that novice users can easily enter queries in their native language.  ...  However, each system provides a different interface for new users, so beginners can use different interactive modes to enter keyword-based queries.  ...  Conflicts of Interest: The authors declare that they have no conflicts of interest to report regarding the present study.  ...
