A similarity measure for indefinite rankings
TLDR
We propose rank-biased overlap (RBO), a measure of the similarity between incomplete rankings, which is based on a simple probabilistic user model. Expand

Methods for Identifying Versioned and Plagiarized Documents
TLDR
We evaluate two families of methods for searching a collection to find documents that are coderivative, that is, are versions of each other. Expand

Phonetic string matching: lessons from information retrieval
TLDR
Phonetic matching is used in applications such as name retrieval, where the spelling of a name is used to identify other strings that are likely to be of similar pronunciation. Expand

Inverted files versus signature files for text indexing
TLDR
We compare inverted files and signature files in the context of text indexing, paying particular attention to query evaluation speed and space requirements. Expand

Compression of inverted indexes For fast query evaluation
TLDR
We propose several simple optimisations to well-known integer compression schemes for inverted lists of document postings that store the position and frequency of indexed terms, and show experimentally that these lead to significant reductions in time. Expand
