Query Behavior: The Impact of Health Literacy, Topic Familiarity and Terminology [chapter]

Carla Teixeira Lopes, Cristina Ribeiro
2013 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
These users and the ones not familiar with the topic use medico-scientific terminology less often than users with more health literacy and topic familiarity.  ...  We conclude that search engines should help these groups of users in query formulation and, since technical documents stimulate the use of medico-scientific terminology in query reformulation, mechanisms  ...  Table 1 . 1 Proportion of reformulated queries with medico-scientific terminology by type of session in users who previously knew/knew not the scientific term.  ...

A Framework for Information Accessibility in Large Video Repositories

Laurianne Sitbon, Benoit Favre, Jinglan Zhang, Andrew A. Bayor, Stewart Koplick, Filip Bircanin, Margot Brereton
2020 Proceedings of the 2020 Conference on Human Information Interaction and Retrieval  
In the context of large information repositories, this concept goes beyond how the documents are organized into how automated processes (browsing or searching) can support users.  ...  It also includes a notion of search (or browsing) accessibility, which reflects the ability to reach the document containing the information.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS This research has been supported by the Australian Research Council under grant LP160100800, with the joint support of the Endeavour Foundation.  ...

Tag-Based Paper Retrieval: Minimizing User Effort with Diversity Awareness [chapter]

Quoc Viet Hung Nguyen, Son Thanh Do, Thanh Tam Nguyen, Karl Aberer
2015 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Addressing this issue, our paper tackles the problem of automatically suggesting new tags for user when he formulates a query.  ...  In that, each paper is associated with a set of tags, allowing user to search for relevant papers by formulating tag-based queries against the system.  ...  Acknowledgment The research has received funding from the EU-FP7 EINS project (grant number 288021) and the ScienceWise project.  ...

Presto: an experimental architecture for fluid interactive document spaces

Paul Dourish, W. Keith Edwards, Anthony LaMarca, Michael Salisbury
1999 ACM Transactions on Computer-Human Interaction  
Presto is a prototype document management system providing rich interaction with documents through meaningful, user-level document attributes, such as "Word file", "published paper", "shared with Jim",  ...  Document attributes capture the multiple different roles that a single document might play, and allow users to rapidly reorganise their document space for the task at hand.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGMENTS Many other people have contributed to the development of these ideas.  ...

A2A: a platform for research in biomedical literature search

Maciej Rybinski, Sarvnaz Karimi, Vincent Nguyen, Cecile Paris
2020 BMC Bioinformatics  
However, they are limited in how users can control the processing of queries and articles—or as we call them documents—by the search engine.  ...  Conclusions We introduce the search and benchmarking tool which is publicly available for the researchers who want to explore different search strategies over published biomedical literature.  ...  Acknowledgements We acknowledge the contributions of our colleagues in the previous versions of the A2A system: Falk Scholer (RMIT University), Sara Falamaki (ex-CSIRO), and Brian Jin (CSIRO).  ...

Using Euler Diagrams in Traditional Library Environments

Jérôme Thièvre, Marie-Luce Viaud, Anne Verroust-Blondet
2005 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
This allows the user to validate his search context and to elaborate strategies to go through the results.  ...  The association of both interfaces generates a tool that allows the user to elaborate the main search strategies through graphical manipulations.  ...  Indeed, if a contour query is associated to a low number of documents, two possibilities appear: either the database does not contain documents relative to these query terms, or the terms are not used  ...

Representation of Ontologies for Information Integration [chapter]

Chantal Reynaud, Brigitte Safar
2002 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
An information integration system provides a uniform query interface to a collection of autonomous and distributed sources, connected to each other thanks to a global mediated schema, called domain ontology  ...  We also propose a method in two steps for representing a domain ontology in the framework of a mediator. The first step is directed by the formalism and the functionalities of the mediator.  ...  Goasdoue who implemented the query engine and has allowed us the optimization of the ontology.  ...

A study of search intermediary working notes: Implications for IR system design

Amanda Spink, Abby Goodrum
1996 Information Processing & Management  
Implications for the design of IR interfaces to support users' EES processes and further research is discussed. 3  ...  Segmentation devices were also used in 48% of the working notes. The creation of working notes during EES processes was a fundamental element within the mediated, interactive IR process.  ...  CONCLUSION The results of this study suggest that what users communicate to an IR system through search queries during an interactive IR search potentially represents a fraction of the possible communications  ...

Managing and querying transaction-time databases under schema evolution

Hyun J. Moon, Carlo A. Curino, Alin Deutsch, Chien-Yi Hou, Carlo Zaniolo
2008 Proceedings of the VLDB Endowment  
The second key piece of technology is that schema evolution is transparent to the user: she writes queries against the current schema while retrieving the data from one or more schema versions.  ...  The system then performs the labor-intensive and error-prone task of rewriting such queries into equivalent ones for the appropriate versions of the schema.  ...  We also thank the anonymous reviewers for their careful reading of the manuscript and useful comments and suggestions that resulted in an improved paper.  ...

Structured Query Reformulations in Commerce Search [article]

Sreenivas Gollapudi, Samuel Ieong, Anitha Kannan
2012 arXiv   pre-print
We find that users agree with the attribute values selected by our approach in about 95 reformulated queries to ones for the original queries in 87  ...  For example, a user looking for designer handbags might start with such a query because she is not familiar with the manufacturers, the price ranges, and/or the material that gives a handbag designer appeal  ...  However, not all tokens in the query can be matched to an attribute. In particular, users may use terms such as designer that do not match any attribute value in the product catalog.  ...

Simple but Effective Knowledge-Based Query Reformulations for Precision Medicine Retrieval

Stefano Marchesin, Giorgio Maria Di Nunzio, Maristella Agosti
2021 Information  
The query reformulations proposed are used to increase the probability of retrieving relevant documents through the addition to, or the removal from, the original query of highly specific terms.  ...  In Information Retrieval (IR), the semantic gap represents the mismatch between users' queries and how retrieval models answer to these queries.  ...  In other words, there does not exist a query reformulation that provides consistently better results than all the others.  ...

Library Discovery Products: Discovering User Expectations through Failure Analysis

Irina Trapido
2016 Information Technology and Libraries  
<p>As the new generation of discovery systems evolve and gain maturity, it is important to continually focus on how users interact with these tools and what areas they find problematic.  ...  The article also offers practical recommendations pertaining to metadata, functionality, and scope of the search system that could help address some of the most common problems encountered by the users  ...  specified by the user or because the query does not match the data in the bibliographic record.  ...
