Title: Image Retrieval for open access PubMedCentral archive
Authors: Huang, Zhong
Keywords: Open Access;Information Retrieval;Images
Issue Date: 23-Apr-2009
Series/Report no.: IST Research Day 2009 posters
Abstract: Traditional literature search engine in the biomedicine domain focuses mainly on summary content such as title, abstract, keywords, journal published, author etc. There is a need to develop full-text search engines to encompass not only summary information, but also experimental details described in results and discussion. Images in the paper convey important and rich information about the experimental design and findings and are key components for results and discussion. Yet so far there is no image retrieval system implemented for literature databases. In this study, we build a prototype for image retrieval of PubMedCentral, an open access biomedical literature database containing full-text articles, to provide researchers a useful tool in looking into details of supporting evidences for scientific findings.
