A Framework for Comparing SDI Systems.
Jordan, John R.
The process of comparing the many Selective Dissemination of Information (SDI) systems is a complicated task, requiring proper test procedures and the control of critical variables. The necessity for controlling the interest level as well as the number of documents disseminated when evaluating systems is demonstrated. The process of SDI is described graphically in order to demonstrate the effect of these variables. (Author)
