Paragraphbased access to fulltext documents using a hypertext system

Paragraphbased access to fulltext documents using a hypertext system This paper considers the use of a hypertext system, GUIDE, for paragraphbased searching in fulltext documents. Searching can be effected in GUIDE using both a conventional, wordbased approach and using the intertextual linkage facilities. The effectiveness of these retrieval techniques are evaluated by means of searches of three fulltext documents for which relevance data are available. The results of the searches are compared with those obtained from use of a nearest neighbour retrieval system that has been developed for the ranking of paragraphs within fulltext documents. The comparison suggests that the linkage facilities in hypertext do not provide a very costeffective mechanism for paragraphbased retrieval. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Program Emerald Publishing

Abstract

This paper considers the use of a hypertext system, GUIDE, for paragraphbased searching in fulltext documents. Searching can be effected in GUIDE using both a conventional, wordbased approach and using the intertextual linkage facilities. The effectiveness of these retrieval techniques are evaluated by means of searches of three fulltext documents for which relevance data are available. The results of the searches are compared with those obtained from use of a nearest neighbour retrieval system that has been developed for the ranking of paragraphs within fulltext documents. The comparison suggests that the linkage facilities in hypertext do not provide a very costeffective mechanism for paragraphbased retrieval.
