Supporting exploratory people search

Shuguang Han, Daqing He, Jiepu Jiang, Zhen Yue
2013 Proceedings of the 22nd ACM international conference on Conference on information & knowledge management - CIKM '13  
This project represents a first attempt to add transparency to exploratory people search, and to give users full control over the search process.  ...  However, the diverse objectives and exploratory nature of those tasks make it difficult to develop a flexible method for people search that works for every task.  ...  The research questions in this study are:  Can an interactive people search system equipped with user control and factor transparency perform better in exploratory people search tasks than existing  ...

A Study on User-Controllable Social Exploratory Search

Cecilia di Sciascio, Peter Brusilovsky, Eduardo Veas
2018 Proceedings of the 2018 Conference on Human Information Interaction&Retrieval - IUI '18  
A range of innovative interfaces with increased user control have been developed to support exploratory search process.  ...  This paper presents an interface that integrates social search functionality into an exploratory search system in a user-controlled way that is consistent with the nature of exploratory search.  ...  Discussion and Limitations In this study we assessed system performance and user experience for a social exploratory search system contrasting it with a system supporting exploratory search alone.  ...

Situating Search

Chirag Shah, Emily M. Bender
2022 ACM SIGIR Conference on Human Information Interaction and Retrieval  
Newly surfaced proposals that aim to use large language models to generate relevant information for a user's needs pose even greater threat to transparency, provenance, and user interactions in a search  ...  The notions of relevance, usefulness, and trustworthiness with respect to information were already overloaded and often difficult to articulate, study, or implement.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS We are grateful to the following distinguished scholars for reviewing early drafts of this paper and providing insightful comments: Nicholas J.  ...

What every Researcher should know about Searching – Clarified Concepts, Search Advice, and an Agenda to improve Finding in Academia

Michael Gusenbauer, Neal R. Haddaway
2020 Research Synthesis Methods  
We explain the main types of searching that we academics routinely engage in; distinguishing lookup, exploratory, and systematic searching.  ...  We respond to Klopfenstein and Dampier (Res Syn Meth. 2020) who commented on our 2020 paper and proposed a way of improving PubMed's and Google Scholar's search functionalities.  ...  From the avalanche of studies, it is relatively easy to select evidence that supports a pre-held belief or dogma that portrays a biased picture of reality.  ...

Social Search [chapter]

Peter Brusilovsky, Barry Smyth, Bracha Shapira
2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
This includes a number of detailed case studies that serve to mark important milestones in the evolution of social search research and practice.  ...  The chapter begins by framing the social search landscape in terms of the sources of data available and the ways in which this can be leveraged before, during, and after search.  ...  Thus, from the perspective of the user, AQE is a type of query formulation technique that is transparent, in that it is performed in the background in a manner that is typically unseen by the user.  ...

From Accessibility to Assess-Ability: An Evaluation Heuristic Based on Cognitive Engagement in Search [chapter]

2018 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Turning to the question of the design of the interface itself, the heuristic of assessability (of the information retrieved) is proposed for use in the expert review of the search interface, and to support  ...  The meta analysis of a questionnaire based survey seeks to identify the constructs of the users' assessment of information.  ...  Furthermore user studies of the searcher, in formulating the query and controlling the search as an effective series of moves (e.g., in [8] ), are by and large based on an assumption that the searcher  ...
