A Probabilistic Search Strategy for MEDLARS
Miller, William L.
Journal of Documentation, 27, 4, 254-266, Dec 71
Causes of Boolean failures to retrieve relevant MEDLARS index references are: search formulator failed to include important terms, indexer failed to include important terms, and misunderstanding of user's needs. On the evidence of this test the Probabilistic search is at least a partial solution to these problems. (8 references) (Author/NH)
