Gravity Wells of Meaning: Detecting Information-Rich Passages in Scientific Texts.
Paijmans, Hans
Journal of Documentation, v53 n5 p520-36 Dec 1997
A study of 24 scientific articles in the South African Computer Journal compared four term-weighting schemes for detecting information-rich passages in texts. Results demonstrated that word categories and frequency-derived weights were closely correlated but that weighting according to first mention theory (cue-method) and frequency-based weights were not. Lists articles used for the study. (PEN)
