Title Retrieval from full-text medical literature: the dream & the reality
Date 1991-01-01
Description While the retrieval of the full-text of a document might seem to end all the hassle of using traditional retrieval systems, the results of the MEDLINE/Full-Text Project indicate that retrieval from the current full-text databases of biomedical journal literature does not match the dream. During the first phase of the project the researchers learned that searching the full-text databases resulted in the retrieval of a significantly larger number of relevant documents than MEDLINE. However, the full-text databases also resulted in a large number of non-relevant documents. Currently the researchers are focusing on how to search these databases to continue retrieving the large number of relevant documents but without so many non-relevant items.
