Optimal Query Expansion (QE) Processing Methods with Semantically Encoded Structured Thesauri Terminology.
Greenberg, Jane
Journal of the American Society for Information Science and Technology, v52 n6 p487-498 Apr 2001
Explores what might be the optimal query expansion (QE) processing method with semantically coded thesauri. Examines whether QE via semantically coded thesauri terminology is more effective in the "automatic" or "interactive" processing environment. Results revealed that synonyms and partial synonyms and narrower terms are "generally good" candidates for automatic QE and that related terms are "better" candidates for interactive QE. (AEF)
