  19. Natural Language Searching

  20. Natural Language Searching • Ovid Natural Language uses four steps to help you search Ovid Books more thoroughly: • Natural Language analysis • Synonym Expansion • Passage Searching • Relevance Ranking

  21. Natural Language Analysis & Synonym Expansion • Ovid filters to eliminate irrelevant terms and expands each concept using word variants taken from a proprietary medical lexicon. • Obtain best results by: • Stating your question as concisely as possible • Using nouns more than verbs • Avoiding common spelling errors – Spell Check • When searching Books@Ovid, the software automatically expands your query: • Singular and plural forms of your search terms (truncation ) • Strong synonyms from a lexicon • Hyponyms (car is a hyponym of vehicle) • Acronyms (like an abbreviation) • Alternative spellings (British or US English)

  22. Passage Searching & Relevance Ranking • Search results involve passages of text which include your search terms (and/or their synonyms). The closer the terms are to one another, the more relevant the results are likely to be. • Star Scores indicate how relevant passages are to your question. • ***** All search concepts are present and complete • **** All concepts are present but some are incomplete • *** One concept is missing • ** Two concepts are missing • * More than two concepts are missing
