2014 ACM Computing Surveys  
Traditional search engines return ranked lists of search results. It is up to the user to scroll this list, scan within different documents, and assemble information that fulfill his/her information need. Aggregated search represents a new class of approaches where the information is not only retrieved but also assembled. This is the current evolution in Web search, where diverse content (images, videos, etc.) and relational content (similar entities, features) are included in search results.

We start with related work in related domains such as federated search, natural language generation, and question answering. Then we focus on more recent trends, namely cross vertical aggregated search and relational aggregated search, which are already present in current Web search.
