What is the influence of genre during the perception of structured text for retrieval and search? (2014)
Thesis
CLARK, M.J. 2014. What is the influence of genre during the perception of structured text for retrieval and search? Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

This thesis presents an investigation into the high value of structured text (or form) in the context of genre within Information Retrieval. In particular, how are these structured texts perceived and why are they not more heavily used within Informa...

In document retrieval using pseudo relevance feedback, after initial ranking, a fixed number of top-ranked documents are selected as feedback to build a new expansion query model. However, very little at- tention has been paid to an intuitive but cri... Read More about Robust query-specific pseudo feedback document selection for query expansion..

This paper presents a novel framework to further advance the recent trend of using query decomposition and high-order term re- lationships in query language modeling, which takes into account terms implicitly associated with di®erent subsets of quer...
