Text Structures and the User-Intermediary Interaction.
Allen, Bryce
RQ, v27 n4 p535-41 Sum 1988
This study examined whether reference questions based on the text-linguistic structure of scientific literature would enable users to express their information needs effectively. Subjects with similar levels of topic familiarity completed online search forms that used open, bibliographic, or (text-linguistic) structural questions. Questions based on text-linguistic structure produced longer and more complete responses. (22 references) (MES)
