Title: Another Look at Automatic Text Retrieval Systems
Authors: Salton, Gerard
Keywords: computer science
technical report
Issue Date: Dec-1985
Publisher: Cornell University
Abstract: The characteristics of automatic text retrieval systems are briefly described, and the available experimental evidence comparing manual with automatic retrieval is reviewed. Several automatic text analysis and indexing models are then examined, and a basic automatic indexing process is proposed. There is no evidence that an intellectual content analysis performed by human subject experts produces better retrieval results than comparable automatic text processing systems.
