Design and Evaluation of a Psychological Experiment on the Effectiveness of Document Summarization for the Retrieval of Multilingual WWW Documents

Joanne Capstick, Gregor Erbach and Hans Uszkoreit

A psychological experiment was conducted to examine the extent to which different types of automatically generated summaries aid retrieval and systematically evaluate user needs and behaviour in the area of crosslanguage retrieval for the WWW.
