Spink, Amanda; Greisdorf, Howard; Bateman, Judy
Journal of Information Science, v25 n6 p477-87 1999

Results show most successive searches involve some change in search terms and databases, but precision did not necessarily increase and the percentage of relevant items decreased significantly after three searches.
