Paper of LiNCS researchers accepted to JASIST

Web search engines are the gateway for users to access health information. This study explored whether a search interface based on the Bing API and enabled by Scatter/Gather, a well-known document clustering technique, can improve health information search. Forty participants without medical background were randomly assigned to two interfaces, a baseline interface that resembles typical Web search engines and a Scatter/Gather interface. Both groups performed two lookup and two exploratory health-related tasks.
