Mohammad Ubaidullah Bokhari, Mohd. Kashif Adhami . A New Criterion for Evaluating News Search Systems. Communications on Applied Electronics. 2, 7 ( August 2015), 28-35. DOI=10.5120/cae2015651806
Measuring the effectiveness of web search engines had been widely studied for the past fifteen years and different methods have been proposed by the researchers. These studies helps in identifying the most effective search engine and are useful for both users at the personal level and search engine vendors at the business level. So in this paper, first we extensively review traditional web search evaluation methods under four major categories and then discuss the urge for news search evaluation. We discuss possible criteria and quality measures foe evaluating web-based news search systems. And finally we evaluate four news search systems under a new criterion-information richness, i. e., extracting the useful contents from search result record (SRR).
