Keyword Search: Quite Exploratory Actually
This short position paper describes some evidence found that counters the argument that there are better ways to support exploratory search than keyword search. Instead, this paper suggests that keyword search actually provides people with the freedom to search in relation to their own current state of understanding, rather than in the terms controlled by a search system. The challenge for future exploratory search systems, therefore, may be to maintain and enhance such freedoms.

Abstract

This short position paper describes some evidence found that counters the argument that there are better ways to support exploratory search than keyword search. Instead, this paper suggests that keyword search actually provides people with the freedom to search in relation to their own current state of understanding, rather than in the terms controlled by a search system. The challenge for future exploratory search systems, therefore, may be to maintain and enhance such freedoms.
